I have never heard any girl named this, but I love it: both the full version and the shortened. It does naturally sound very dramatic and IF I have a girl she may be a little shy thing.
Any thoughts?

Cleo on its own if you must. Not Cleopatra!

Gateau Mon 13-Jul-09 11:33:45

I thought it might get that reaction. It's a very out there name!

I know a Cleo, which I think is a lovely name, but not Cleopatra!

Cleo I like. Or Clio.

I knew of sisters Clio and Xara. And they would be in their late 40s now. Weird that both names became cars.

We would have called DS Cleo - he is Theodore, or Theo.

But not Cleopatra, just Cleo is lovely.

I know a Cleopatra known as Cleo, she is a teenager now.

oh I loved the name Cleopatra, always thought when growing up if I ever had a daughter I'd call her Cleopatra Meg. DH vetoed it straight away needless to say! - I say go for it if you like it and your DP is ok with it!!!
<now beth runs off and hides as obviously in the minority here!!!>
