Any ideas? Due to initials it can't begin with o or a...

Is it a boy or a girl?

Minidanish Sun 15-Sep-13 21:14:31

A boy! Clement is a boy's name, Clementine is the girl's variant

I'd go safe and classic so he has a back up name.
Clement Arthur
Clement George
Clement Edward etc

Love it though

Clement Aubrey or Clement willoughby.
Love Clement.

My uncle was Clement. Great name. He was Donald Robin Clement Averley. I like several names especially good ones. How about one from:

Luke, Claude, Ezra, Frederick, Dominic, Hector, Elliot, Curtis, Haydon,
then add a 'classic' name?

Clement Elgin Orinoka then he can have CEO as his initials.

Clement Joseph
Clement Currer
Clement Edward
Clement Edgar
Clement George
Clement James
Clement Bramwell
Clement Henry
Clement Frederick
Clement Linus
Clement Francis
Clement Rufus
Clement Eugene (I like this one!)

Just thought of another: Clement Nathaniel (has a ring to it!)
Re the name Bramwell, it's an old English name and fewer than 5 American babies (boys) were given this name in 2012, so it's pretty rare... It means 'from the bramble bush spring'
Currer is an old English male name (the male pen name of Charlotte Bronte was Currer Bell)
Clement Ellis would be nice (if you are Christian and faith is important to you, you might like it as it is an old Welsh name meaning (in Hebrew) 'The Lord is my God'.
I think you need a strong and unusual name with gravitas and oomph to follow Clement (which I love,btw!)

My Clem is Clement Ralph Caradoc.

Ambrose, Innes and Aubrey are currently on the cards for DS2 - it has been quite tricky finding names that we feel 'match up' with Clem's name!

Minidanish Mon 16-Sep-13 14:27:00

Aww,thanks guys,some great suggestions. I love Rufus, Nathaniel, bramwell,Linus and Hector. Love Aubrey but can't use it due to initials. We initially wanted George but have been pipped to the post by a close family member.

Glad I'm getting some love for Clement,we think its a great name!

LeoandBoosmum Mon 16-Sep-13 16:39:55

smile Let us know what you go for in the end. Clement is a really great name!
BTW, Rufus would be great if he is born with red hair as it means red-haired. smile

I have a Clement Peter, but he was nearly Clement Anthony. It is a fantastic name, Clem is a great nickname. Go for it.

Minidanish, are you Zara Phillips?!

How many syllables is your surname? I think you need either a one or three syllable middle name.

Minidanish Wed 18-Sep-13 21:06:04

Haha,wouldn't mind being zara Philips! Our surname is one syllable
