opinions on this name? does it make you think of cleopatra because wouldn't REALLY want that. or does it sound too "made up"?

DramaAlpaca Sun 02-Apr-17 23:51:33

I suppose it does make me think of Cleopatra, but in a good way. Doesn't sound made up, anyway.

SirNiallDementia Sun 02-Apr-17 23:51:53

Lovely name! Very cool!

I think of clepoatra or cleo mcqueen from hollyoaks. My dad's dog is also called cleo and I know 3 other dogs named it. Pretty name though! X

It doesn't sound 'made up' at all - because it isn't. Yes, it inevitably makes people think of Cleopatra (but is that a bad thing? Powerful and beautiful woman) - but apart from that, made me think of Cleo Laine (maybe that shows my age though)

Love Cleo! Makes me think of Amanda Barrie in Carry On Cleo, rather then Cleopatra herself. I've known a few though, and never thought of anyone other than the person themselves. And definitely not made up.

It was on our shortlist for dd1. She really suits the name we picked but she definitely would have made an awesome little Cleo. Go for it!

Sophronia Mon 03-Apr-17 00:23:00

I like it!

KoalaDownUnder Mon 03-Apr-17 00:24:05

It's one of my favourite names ever.

EasterRobin Mon 03-Apr-17 00:40:39

It's a great name. I've always loved it. (Could never pick between Cleo or Chloe though)

CadburyMellos Mon 03-Apr-17 07:23:10

I adore C names but Cleo is too much of a car name for me.

WhereforeArtThouManatee Mon 03-Apr-17 07:26:44

I work with a Cleo. She's very strong, very cool, so I think it's a great name!

Serowe72 Mon 03-Apr-17 07:34:06

Car, cat or stripper

Bogburglar75 Mon 03-Apr-17 07:34:51

Cleo Laine. Excellent name.

Thingvellir Mon 03-Apr-17 08:04:42

Love it. But I do have a cat called Cleopatra nn Cleo

* Cleo is too much of a car name for me.*

That's Clio. Which would otherwise be a nice alternative - the Greek muse of history.

plutohasfeelingstoo Mon 03-Apr-17 08:06:44

Love it. I knew one when I was young and to me she was the coolest person alive.

Jooni Mon 03-Apr-17 08:23:27

Love it!

Fraggleface Mon 03-Apr-17 08:30:45

Love it. On our shortlist should we have a dd2.

SuperBeagle Mon 03-Apr-17 08:33:54

I don't like it, but, weirdly, Chloe is my favourite name. hmm

thebakerwithboobs Mon 03-Apr-17 08:34:44

Our dog is called Cleo...

TheDowagerCuntess Mon 03-Apr-17 08:42:48

No, not Cleopatra, Cleo Laine for me too.

FoxesSitOnBoxes Mon 03-Apr-17 08:44:57

Cleo is an excellent name!

Lindy2 Mon 03-Apr-17 08:52:58

I know a little girl called Cleo. I also know a cat called Cleo.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 03-Apr-17 09:54:13

It's nice. It doesn't make me think of Cleopatra.
