What do you think of the name chloe? Honest opinions please. Our baby is as yet unnamed and we can’t agree

Octopeppa Mon 11-Jun-18 14:10:09

I like it.

The name is very nice or at least it was about 20 years ago when it was fairly unusual. It became massively popular so has already peaked.
I would be put off by how it sounds in some regional accents, and by the shortening to Chlo.
If you love the name use it.

Love Chloe, it’s beautiful

Blazinghotmonkey Mon 11-Jun-18 14:18:17

I find it a little dated but it is a perfectly reasonable name and you should go for it if you and your OH like it smile

I personally find it rather sickly sweet. Not sure if it's because it reminds me of the word 'cloying'. Surprisingly popular dog name of invariably spoiled dogs. I infinitely prefer Cleo.

I like it, it's 9yr old DD1s name. Although, before we had her, I never liked it because it seemed too 'popular'. I only know of one other Chloe in her school though so maybe not.

It makes me think of cloying too or Claw-y. Zoe is much nicer.

DramaAlpaca Mon 11-Jun-18 14:28:15

It's fine. Unremarkable and perfectly nice. If you both love it, go for it.

Cadencia Mon 11-Jun-18 14:31:40

I really like it! I know two (an 8yo and an adult), so it's not too popular either.

HeyMicky Mon 11-Jun-18 14:34:13

It's very nice. It's top 20 though so quite popular

TwinkleTee Mon 11-Jun-18 14:40:40

I have an 8 day old Chloe lying asleep next to me. I think its safe to say that I love the name smile

NoNamesLeft86 Mon 11-Jun-18 14:43:18

I love the name. My cat (before children) was called Chloe and if it hadn't been for her than my daughter would have been Chloe.

Peachbubble Mon 11-Jun-18 14:47:57

I like it

MollyHuaCha Mon 11-Jun-18 14:52:25

As a pp said, it's nice in some accents and not nice in others.

I like it in my own accent. Try out the name yourself in these accents:

Manchester
Liverpool
Edinburgh
Glasgow
Cornish
Southern Wales
New York
Mississippi
California

German person speaking English

It’s a bit 90s.

spotspot Mon 11-Jun-18 15:44:25

I really like it. My friends baby is called Chloe and it's brilliant. I find it refreshing: I don't know any child/baby Chloes apart from her.

FrogPie Mon 11-Jun-18 15:46:07

Great name, OP ;)

bellanotte22 Mon 11-Jun-18 15:46:42

There's a lot of Chloes where I live. This alone would put me off but it has a lovely meaning so if you love it, go for it.

MatildaLovesBooks Mon 11-Jun-18 15:47:15

Very bland and stuck in the 90s (sorry).

Pemba Mon 11-Jun-18 15:49:33

It's a lovely name. Just because it was ultra-popular 20-30 years ago doesn't stop it being lovely. Much nicer than some of the names that are so popular now, eg. Isla, Florence.

BorisHair Mon 11-Jun-18 16:08:19

I don't dislike it but I know 3 x Chloes in DC's year at school, 1 x grown up Chloe and 2 x Chloe cats so it's popular here.

ButterflyOfFreedom Mon 11-Jun-18 16:16:02

Love it!

cptartapp Mon 11-Jun-18 16:19:07

Pretty but rather dated.

Mollie85 Mon 11-Jun-18 16:55:05

As another poster said - pretty but unremarkable... in the 90s, about four of the kids I babysat were Chloe’s, so I feel it’s a bit dated, but if you love it- use it grin
