We are about to have DD3 and really in a pickle. We have had Cleo chosen for our third daughter even before I got pregnant but now are getting cold feet. Having a Cleo on The Voice has kind of put us off as now it will look like we have just seen it on tv and decided its cool if you know what I mean!
Our other alternatives are Holly or Charis (pronounced "Caris").

Please give me your opinions as time is running out- or any other suggestions!! Thanks

Friends have a daughter called Charis and it is often mispronounced as if it begins with ch. Otherwise lovely name. Doesn't it mean 'grace'?

Charis is definitely a variety of cannabis. Avoid!

Cleo is great. Like cool chanteuse Cleo Lane.

Prefer Charis as Cerys.

Holly is lovely dislike Cleo and think Charis is awful sorry.

Love, love, love Charis.

Charis is a kind of cannabis isn't it? Holly is boring. Cleo is great.

Yes, don't worry about The Voice. Hardly anyone will be watching and even less will remember in a year.

You could always put a spin on it and have Celyn, which is Welsh for Holly...

Yes I now think that Cleo is the best! It's snappy and uncommon without being unheard of.

Definitely stick with Cleo - by far the best of the three. Dislike Charis, and Holly is nice and inoffensive but becoming somewhat dated I think.

Holly, definitely.

Although I MAY be biased as I have a Holly

Who the hell will remember Cleo from the voice in two months time? That's if anyone even watches it smile

Ok my husband was getting cold feet with Cleo but has just announced he still wants to go with it! Thanks for the input smile

ArabellaBeaumaris Tue 14-May-13 07:33:21

Cleo, definitely.

lovedimsum Tue 14-May-13 07:24:13

Well just because Cleo is less common than Holly....

Cleo is fab.

Why would people think you've got Cleo off the TV any more than Holly?

Love Carys / charis. Don't mind Cleo or Holly.

Charis or cleo, I do like cleo. Holly is nice, definitely winter though and does seem like it was fashionable a little while ago.

Clarice? Cecilia? Clara?

I'd use Charis, as it feels more versatile to me, though I think Cleo is very cool.

Carys is lovely, Charis looks funny.

Like Cleo too.

Holly is a bit boring.

lovedimsum Tue 14-May-13 00:38:23

How about Primrose then? Have also always liked that name....

BunnyLebowski Tue 14-May-13 00:24:23

Cleo is fab. Different without being u-neek. Striking and pretty.

Holly is Christmas themed and a bit 90's.

Charis is ok but I much prefer the Welsh version, Carys.

Not Charis!! Love Cleo.
