I think Clover is delightful.

What Katy Did pops straight into my mind.

Clover is nicer than Daisy (bit too cutesy) and Flora (bit too maiden aunt).

Ignore the dairy related comments. Is lovely. Or Flora?

Clover is also on of the rabbits in Watership Down.

I know a baby Clover, and I really like the name.

Butter connotations and cows spring to mind

In Animal Farm wasn't it the sheep who was called Clover

I love love love Clover! It was always on my girls list, but alas I only had boys.

I loved the What Katy Did books so always associate the name with those rather than cows etc.

I absolutely love Clover. It didn't work with our surname <weeps>. Please use it.

I have, "over and over, crimson and clover"

Anyone else?

I quite like it as a name though. Flora is marg too and still a name.

Oh we all love clover all over the land oh we all love clover it's the way that its churned.

Love it! It's definitely a Marmite name. I think of 'What Katy Did' and an outdoorsy, faintly tomboyish kind of girl. Don't get the whole 'cow's name' thing, but then again I also love Tabitha (which everyone says is a cat's name) and Rufus (which everyone says is a dog's name)!

Clover and Flora are margarine, lifetime of 'spreads easily' jokes at school. No.

Daisy is a nice name.

HagsFlungOut Mon 22-Apr-13 11:19:47

Do the people who dislike the name Clover also dislike Daisy?

I agree with BresticlesNTesticles (now that is quite a coll name grin). I don't see Clover as a person name at all.

Purplemonster Mon 22-Apr-13 00:43:44

It's my dog's name so I cant imagine it for a child personally, it ends up getting shortened to 'Clo' as well which I'm not keen on, it's a bit harsh sounding.

K8Middleton Mon 22-Apr-13 00:32:15

Have you considered Clodagh? Sounds very similar but is a nice Irish name.

VisualiseAHorse Mon 22-Apr-13 00:31:35

Love it! Reminds me of 'What Katy Did'

GW297 Mon 22-Apr-13 00:25:46

I like it too!

mewkins Sun 21-Apr-13 23:16:26

Clover and Buttercup are cows' names.

thermalsinapril Sun 21-Apr-13 17:25:42

I like it!

Ruprekt Sun 21-Apr-13 16:53:37

At no point in my life (am now 42) would I have wanted to be called Clover.

Just No.

Nice for a cow or a cat. smilesmilesmilesmile

It's What Katy Did books for me - my all time favourite reads as a child and I think it's a lovely name which obviously has been rather spoilt by the spread reference.

TwllBach Sun 21-Apr-13 15:47:58

I like it a lot. Soft and gentle without being too cutesy. I wouldn't be too worried about the brand association either.

mummanj Sun 21-Apr-13 15:45:34

I like it. Clo for a nn is lovely too.

HagsFlungOut Sun 21-Apr-13 15:20:31

It will always be What Katy Did for me, but I do understand the cow reference. Doesn't seem to affect the popularity of similar names though.

I'm unaware of the "butter" reference, as I never buy those artificial spreads, only real butter so I don't look at the rest of it.
