One of my old work colleagues had a baby called Clover. I like it.

If I had a pet cow I would call her Clover.

Pinkjenny Thu 21-Aug-08 14:39:12

Absolutely love it and I thought of What Katy Did immediately.

derelicte Thu 21-Aug-08 14:45:03

It has the same connotations to me as Daisy (slightly winsome / hippyish, but likely to be used mainly by middle-class folk wink). But it's less frequently used, which can be a good thing.

Sounds like a cow to me too.

chipmonkey Thu 21-Aug-08 14:56:09

I love it! also thought of What Katy Did

I have a dog called Clova, after Glen Clova in Angus. That spelling avoids any butter connotations...

What Katy Did

It is also one of those stereotypical names for cows, but so is Daisy and that is very very popular.

Flightlite Thu 21-Aug-08 15:05:14

It's gorgeous smile

MrsMattie Thu 21-Aug-08 15:06:48

Dreadful. Silly. A cow's name.

I know a little girl called Clova - suits her.

everlong Thu 21-Aug-08 15:13:17

No no no. A guinea pigs name.

TheOldestCat Thu 21-Aug-08 15:17:34

I think of 'What Katy Did' too - I can see Clover with dark curls from the illustrated version I had as a child.

It's a lovely name.

PinkyDinkyDooToo Thu 21-Aug-08 15:36:43

I think its very pretty

TenaciousG Thu 21-Aug-08 15:40:45

Yep, I also think of What Katy Did and I also love it. Very pretty, and although it is a flower name, it has a 'harder' more serious/purposeful sound than Daisy or Poppy, iyswim, cos of the consonant ending, which stops it sounding twee.

beattiepotter Thu 21-Aug-08 15:49:23

Clover from the Katy books.

It has love in it too smile

And Clover was the lovely, sweet, goodnatured sister as well..
