I like unique, but girly names. I did like Lola, but have seen it completely overused and am now pretty off it.

What are your thoughts on Clover? Does it sound like a horse's name? Or a leprechaun? Another suggestions for girly, but different names?

Hmm. Think it's a cow's name, albeit a nice cow. What about Posy?

There was a girl in my school called Clover, really suited her (she looked a bit like Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter!)

Love it, wish I'd slipped it in as an extra middle name for dd (still might). I just think of what Katy Did.

Actually just facebook stalked her a bit out of interest blush as I'd totally forgotten about her and she is stunning these days!

Tastes great on toast

Gorgeous name

Pobblewhohasnotoes Wed 17-Jul-13 12:37:20

No, makes me think of cows.

Clover the Cow? Sorry!

daddoinghisbest Wed 17-Jul-13 12:57:09

Crazy! It's bovine, it's a cheap butter substitute and a pest in the lawn. The only good clover is a four leaf clover. How about buttercup? smile

GiveMeVegemite Wed 17-Jul-13 14:36:45

Haha mixed responses! I am open to suggestions, but so far still loving Clover smile

a friend of a friend is called Clover- lovely name, lovely lady.

Ignore all the cow & spread comments (Disclaimer I called DD Stella - got a run of beer jokes..............yawn!)

Hmmm - not keen.

How about:

Sounds masculine, like Rover. Also reminds me of a cow and butter, sorry.

NotGoodNotBad Wed 17-Jul-13 15:13:04

Cow for me too!

CecyHall Wed 17-Jul-13 15:44:30

Yes I love Clover! DH wouldn't agree.

(A What Katy Did fan, hence my name on here!)

daddoinghisbest Wed 17-Jul-13 15:45:37

If my son had been born a girl she would have been named Trixie Matilda. My mum still thanks god every day that we had a boy. But I still like it. What do you think?

soontobeslendergirl Wed 17-Jul-13 15:56:34

Trixie is surely a yorkshire terrier?

PipkinsPal Wed 17-Jul-13 16:03:39

It might be a good idea to give your child a cutesy name but imagine them being an old person and having the indignity of being in the Doctor's waiting room and the Doctor calling Tigerlily Smith over the tannoy and all eyes watching an old lady shuffling in with their zimmer frame. IMO Clover is the name of a cow or a rabbit.

squoosh Wed 17-Jul-13 16:05:41

Trixie Matilda is certainly ummmm, attention grabbing. But I have to say, it makes me imagine a woman called Matilda who performs 'tricks'.

8thplace Wed 17-Jul-13 16:53:03

I don't thinks its a pretty name, or a very girly name either. Sounds quite hard to me and I'm not keen at all , sorry.

(I am of an age where it brings to mind ermintrude, marigold and buttercup)

Are you sure it is a girls' name - sounds masculine to my ears, like Grover or Rover.
