Clover Pearl

Do we think this is okay even though it's a butter?

Does anyone have any other middle name suggestions. Found that quite challenging! Last name is a single syllable object (so not Iona or anything!)

I love Clover but am less fond of Pearl. I think Clover needs something a bit longer and frillier to balance it:

Clover Hermione
Clover Leonora
Clover Melissa
Clover Georgiana
Clover Isabella
Or even Clover Naomi - it's not frilly but it has syllables and looks and sounds pretty! smile

Clover Pearl sounds like a fabric softener,and Pearl is an awful name imho. I'd think a longer,more elegant name would work better with Clover,particuarly if the surname is a one syllable name.

I think Clover sounds like a name normally used for a cow - I've known lots named Clover.

However it works for Daisy so be a trend-setter smile

Not sure it goes with Pearl though

Sounds like the winner of the 4.45 at Chepstow...

LetThereBeRock Sun 26-Jun-11 17:53:04

Something like Alexandria,Georgia,Isabella,Elizabeth etc.

LetThereBeRock Sun 26-Jun-11 17:54:07

Jessica perhaps.

TangerineQueen Sun 26-Jun-11 18:11:27

Hmm... It does kind of sound like a fabric softener doesn't it? Shame... Also wonder why we didn't see that! blush

I love Coralie but Clover Coralie might be too alliterative. DH not keen.

We have discussed Leonie (prefer this to Leonora)

Clover Rebecca/Rebekah
Clover Elisabeth

Clover then maybe two short names? Know someone with May Ellen which I think is lovely but can't think of anything similar which we like!

Really like Marie and Isabella - thank you!

Thank you for so many suggestions so quickly!

Clover Leonie sounds really sweet. I really like Rebecca too.

Clover Megan

I know a grown up Clover and I've never thought of butter when I've spoken to her.

I might now, of course grin.

Bandwitch Sun 26-Jun-11 22:58:13

Clover Pearl sounds like a product I agree, a bath milk !

Clover Eugenie popped into my head.

AlmaMartyr Sun 26-Jun-11 23:24:46

I LOVE the name Clover although wouldn't use Pearl as a middle name. I like Clover Elizabeth or with two short names. If DC2 had been a girl I would have had Clover something Anne.

TangerineQueen Mon 27-Jun-11 00:03:58

Thanks everyone! Love Anneliese, had kind of forgotten about it as "A" names for first names were out from the start.

Juliet I also really like.

Think Clover Eugenie works but isn't for us. Irrationally put off by the princess even though I've nothing against her.

Like Anne for one of the short names, thank you!

This has been so useful!

I love Clover. Taught a gorgeous one once.

I think your ideas of Clover Rebecca and Clover Elisabeth are lovely. Like Pearl but not with Clover.

razzlebathbone Mon 27-Jun-11 12:48:09

Clover is a fantastic name. I would have loved to have used it too but it was a complete no no with my surname :-(

What about:

Clover Amelie
Clover Sylvie
Clover Delphine
Clover Emmeline
Clover Arianne

Clover Constance

I think Clover is really nice and quite unusual without being pretentious. I don't think Pearl goes either, but Elizabeth or Louise are nice.

kickingking Mon 27-Jun-11 14:00:45

Personally, I like Clover but there is always the butter/dairy cow case.

I don't like Pearl as it reminds me of shower gels, etc. and I don't think it goes with Clover. Clover Pearl sounds a bit fabric softener - sorry.

I think Clover needs a traditional, classic name to go with it. Clover Elizabeth or Clover Annabel spring to my mind.

Rhubarbgarden Mon 27-Jun-11 18:09:05

I love Clover Jane. I think Clover is such a beautiful, unusual, name that if you put a long frilly middle name with it it loses something - almost like it gets crowded out. I really wanted a Clover Jane but my surname rules it out.
