Thoughts on girl name.....

Cleo.

Think this name is great because it’s strong, feminine without being fussy, classic and beautiful and with a lovely meaning: glory.

But I have doubts over whether or not it’s the one. (Don’t care about car or cat associations). Worried the “Cl” sound is too harsh?!

Thoughts anyone?

We have one and obviously love it!

She is often mistakenly called Chloe but we just politely correct smile

I’ve come across a few Cleos recently, along with a fair few Coras and Claras. I like it. My friend who named her baby Cleo recently says she gets a fair few people saying Chloe.

I think it's wonderful. I wish I was called Cleo!

Thanks for your comments, glad everyone likes it so far. It’s between this and Rose, which I also love for its simple, classic elegance. DH prefers Cleo tho smile

I like it!

I prefer Clara TBH but no idea why

Elmo303 Sun 19-Nov-17 09:45:33

I like Clara but feel it’s very popular right now. Cleo has more of a unique but not too out there feel to me

Cleo Rose works - why not both?

Elmo303 Sun 19-Nov-17 09:57:38

Sounds lovely but always swore I wouldn’t put Rose in the middle as it’s such a default middle name. Maybe it’s not a big deal tho smile

Agree Cleo Rose, lovely !

Cauliflowercheede Sun 19-Nov-17 12:33:27

I love Cleo. It’s one of my favourite names.

Hate Clara.

Lovely 🤗

Love it.

Really love Cleo, for the reasons you have mentioned.

Smoliver Sun 19-Nov-17 17:40:14

I really like Cleo. It's sounds like a strong, beautiful, classic name to me smile

I don't think the "Cl" part sounds harsh when paired with the "e-o" part, whereas the "Cl" part of Clara sounds a bit harsh to me.

Cleo much better than Rose, imo.

Motherducksaidquackquackquack Sun 19-Nov-17 19:45:52

Reeeeeally like it smile

Elmo303 Sun 19-Nov-17 19:55:02

Very encouraging responses, thanks guys!!

Ohyesiam Sun 19-Nov-17 21:09:34

It's really regal and feminine.

DramaAlpaca Sun 19-Nov-17 21:11:47

Love it.

I'd put Cleopatra on the birth cert though.

I wouldn't really grin

SuperBeagle Sun 19-Nov-17 22:43:21

I don't like it at all. Reminds me of mystics and cats.

But weirdly, Chloe is my all time favourite name.

I prefer Rose to Cleo.

IWouldBeSuperb Sun 19-Nov-17 22:50:05

Love it!

And if you wanted a 'full' name with Cleo as a nickname, I know a Cleome (pronounced Clee-oh-me) which I also think is gorgeous!

Ropsleybunny Sun 19-Nov-17 22:51:14

Love it 💕

Love it. Cool name - sounds like a strong girl name.
