With an 'i'. As in the Greek muse of history. Too Renault?

Or any other names that are a bit different but not crazy, and ideally don't end in 'a', as a sister for Elsa...

Like Cleo. Clio is a not very reliable car DH used to drive to me, sorry!

RefereezaWanka Sun 23-Oct-11 18:17:21

I do think Clio is a bit too renault, I'm afraid. Nice sounding name, though. Cleo nicer.

FairyArmadillo Sun 23-Oct-11 18:19:38

I like Cleo but when I see Clio I think of the car.

ChippingInToThePumpkinLantern Sun 23-Oct-11 18:22:52

Sorry - too Renault

I don't think it would be terrible to have another 'ends in a' name though.

Flowerface Sun 23-Oct-11 18:51:20

I don't think it would be terrible, but it would be nice to think of something a bit different. Can't really think of other girls' names ending in 'o'. Juno?

Too Renault, I'm afraid..

MissBeehiving Sun 23-Oct-11 20:18:55

scarevola Sun 23-Oct-11 20:35:22

I prefer Calliope or Thalia.

BibiBelle Sun 23-Oct-11 20:46:11

Unless conceived in one I'd go with Clio - loved it for DD3 but DH had none of it sad

what about

Isis
Juno
Althea
Maude
Ismay
Nina
Corrinne
Celeste

I have a Cleo, is now 11 - and she loves her name!

Wigeon Sun 23-Oct-11 20:53:17

Clio = the car (ok, and the muse of History, but mostly the car)

Cleo = an actual name (and a very good one too smile)

Wigeon Sun 23-Oct-11 20:55:27

Picture of a small Cleo on my profile (DD2).

Although people will call her Chloe, and spell it Clio, even if you do go with Cleo.

MrsHoolie Sun 23-Oct-11 22:44:05

I LOVE the name Clio. I have a friend with the name and think it must be great to have a rare name.
Go for it.....so much more interesting than the usual top 10!

Ilikedrinkingblood Sun 23-Oct-11 23:08:46

I love it. Cliona/Clíodhna was on my list but DH wasn't keen.

MissBeehiving Mon 24-Oct-11 07:17:49

Hero?

FearfulYank Mon 24-Oct-11 07:18:45

I love Cleo, but Clio, erm...it's a bit like "clit" to me, I don't know why. blush

Don't really like Chloe. Cleopatra makes me think of that short-lived girlband "Cleopatra! Coming atcha!"

Cheeseandseveredfingersarnie Mon 24-Oct-11 14:19:24

Hmm. It seems that most names ending in 'o' are boys names. Back to the drawing board then!

meditrina Mon 24-Oct-11 20:56:20

Female names ending in "o" include: Juno, Hero, Io and Alecto.

meditrina Mon 24-Oct-11 21:05:25

I've justly been looking up some Greek mythology for you. Other (less common) female names ending in "o" include:

Calypso, Erato, Ceto, Aceso, Enyo, Alphito, Caligo, Peitho, Brimo, Brizo, Celaeno, Clotho, Iaso.
