Clementine and Olive, when surname starts with a fruit?

(7 Posts)

Our surname starts with a fruit, and let's say for the sake of an example, it is Pearby.

DH has said our surname rules out both Clementine and Olive, because Clementine/Olive 'Pearby' are both too fruity.

He's right isn't he?

Yes, sorry. Although olive is more of an issue because of the colour connection.

Mm maybe bit open to be the amusement of others. .
But a lady I know has a Holly and an Ivy due soon - some people aren't bothered by outside opinions tho.

I don't think either example is that bad. They are both nice names, I wouldn't immediately think they were "too fruity". I know someone called Clementine Curd though, so perhaps that has lowered my standards and I maintain that they may as well have called her Lemon.

He's right, sorry.

How about Olivia so you avoid the fruity combo? Better to avoid that I think...

Agree pp, Olivia may be better and Clemence?
