Does anyone else see the appeal? (for a girl)

MilkTwoSugarsThanks Sun 31-Dec-17 11:38:31

Rabbit's name grin

ClandestineAdulation Sun 31-Dec-17 12:23:12

Makes me think of the butter! Sorry OP.

Patal Sun 31-Dec-17 13:41:48

Our class rabbits at school are Clover and Buttercup so it’s a no from me

Tinselistacky Sun 31-Dec-17 13:43:22

(Teen) Clover - spreads easily. So it's a no from me.

EllenJanethickerknickers Sun 31-Dec-17 13:45:29

Sorry, but 'spreads easily' was my first thought. My poor friend, Margery, at school (old fashioned name back then) got that quip all the time.

PhatSlag Sun 31-Dec-17 13:46:36

No. It’s up there with Daisy for ‘should be kept as a cows name only’

Marcipex Sun 31-Dec-17 14:15:35

I liked it until tinsel said that sad

MummySparkle Sun 31-Dec-17 14:21:10

Oh we all love cloverrrrr, all overrrrr this land.....

DramaAlpaca Sun 31-Dec-17 14:25:19

Reminds me of the What Katy Did books, which is a nice association, but it does make me think of cows, rabbits & the spread unfortunately.

Clodagh is similar in sound without any of the above connotations.

IPokeBadgers Sun 31-Dec-17 14:25:36

My first thought was of a character in the What Katy Did books that I loved as as child. I haven't re-read them as an adult but I reckon I might not like them quite so much now....the overall message from them is that good girls must always do as they are told....they are very much of their time. But I did like Clover as a name.

Rainybohoho Sun 31-Dec-17 14:26:13

It would be shortened to Clo. Not keen.

PaperdollCartoon Sun 31-Dec-17 14:27:05

I really like it

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 31-Dec-17 14:27:44

Are you naming a calf?
Sorry, no.

Scoleah Sun 31-Dec-17 14:32:09

Each to their own, if you like it then who cares what anyone else thinks? But Made me immediately break into the song from the butter advert!^

..:And we all love Clover, all over this land^


bluelarkx Sun 31-Dec-17 15:22:11

I do love it actually and wouldn't think of the negative connotations personally x

EverythingEverywhere1234 Sun 31-Dec-17 15:27:15

1st thought; is baby a cow?
2nd thought; or a rabbit I suppose

I wouldn't OP, sorry to be negative

daisypond Sun 31-Dec-17 15:36:57

I thought of Clover from What Katy Did first - so that's not a bad association. I didn't actually think of the Clover spread, but now it's been mentioned, that would put me off it as well. But mainly I'm not keen on the idea of naming a person after a tiny nondescript plant that is trodden on underfoot.

TheDailyMailIsADisgustingRag Sun 31-Dec-17 18:38:30

I love it! But I dislike the shortening ‘Clo’ and I imagine that’s what it might end up being shortened to.

Loveache Sun 31-Dec-17 18:45:45

I thought the Clover in What Katy Did was a bit wet. Apart from her, I think of Clover the cow, and the spreadable butter. Not a great name imo.

countdowntothenewyear Sun 31-Dec-17 18:45:45

Chloe yes, Clover no.

Mrsknackered Sun 31-Dec-17 19:19:32

For a cow, yes.

I quite like Flora though!

Dolwar Sun 31-Dec-17 19:58:02

Clover.... spreads easily.... basically calling her a prostitute

Joinourclub Sun 31-Dec-17 20:38:07

I do get the appeal, and had it in my list. But the Marge association was just too strong for me. What about Cleo?

BrokenBattleDroid Sun 31-Dec-17 20:39:51

Too bovine from me I'm afraid Op. It has a nice sound to it so I can see why you might like it... But no.
