Clover as a first name (Australia)

Hello!
I have fallen for the name [name_f]Clover[/name_f] for baby girl (due in 7weeks!!).
I think it’s pretty and I like the nn - [name_f]Clo[/name_f], [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], Co-co, [name_f]Vera[/name_f].
I like that it has love written in it
I like that it has 4 leaf clover connection.
I think it fits in well with the popular names of the moment- [name_f]Harper[/name_f], [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Olive[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Saige[/name_f] etc.

Am I kidding myself? Is it too out there for a human name??
Many thanks!!

I live in the US. But I love clover for a name. It can be a bit much but I like hippy first names like meadow and prairie and it’s similar.

Australian here and another [name_f]Clover[/name_f] fan. As you already mentioned, it fits in with many contemporary names for children today. [name_f]Clover[/name_f] is not too dissimilar from botanical names like [name_f]Willow[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Violet[/name_f] and [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] which currently all feature inside the top 40 baby names in Australia.

I wouldn’t be surprised to hear it out on the playground and I think it will become a lot more familiar in 5 to 10 years. I would also like to add [name_f]Clover[/name_f] [name_m]Moore[/name_m], the [name_m]Lord[/name_m] Mayor of [name_f]Sydney[/name_f], is a real world example of a human who wears the name just fine.

As with any name, there will always be people who aren’t aware of current baby name trends and find your choice a bit strange or simply don’t like it. But yours is the only opinion that counts. All the best with your decision.

[name_f]Clover[/name_f] is cute but sassy, nature-y and sweet with an edge to it.

It’s bold, but it does share the sounds of more popular or classic names - all those you’ve listed, but also [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], [name_f]Cleo[/name_f], [name_f]Lola[/name_f], [name_f]Cora[/name_f], [name_f]Josie[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_f]Rosa[/name_f], and [name_f]Eva[/name_f]. It also has the vibes of things like [name_f]Meadow[/name_f], [name_f]Blossom[/name_f], [name_f]Wren[/name_f], [name_f]Piper[/name_f], [name_f]Dolly[/name_f], [name_f]Indigo[/name_f], [name_f]Indie[/name_f], [name_f]Nova[/name_f], [name_f]Scout[/name_f], so it doesn’t feel too outlandish.

I think it could work

I don’t think it’s too outthere to use. But I do think ‘cow.’ Not trying to put a dampener on your choice, I also like ‘cow names’ [name_f]Blossom[/name_f] & [name_f]Clarabel[/name_f]. If it’s used enough for humans it will shed this association over time anyway, functionally there is no difference between this and other nature names which are v. popular atm.

US perspective. I like [name_f]Clover[/name_f]! You may get a few eyebrows but she wouldn’t stand out amongst her peers so I think it’s usable.

Ι’m from Europe, but I think [name_f]Clover[/name_f] is lovely!! I’ve known people with really “outlandish” first names like [name_f]Moon[/name_f] and Ladybug, and they wore them without any real problems, so I think [name_f]Clover[/name_f] with its familiar sounds and style would be just fine!

Huge congratulations :tada:

My English perspective

Clover is gorgeous! She’s cheerful, packed full of springtime energy, joyous, energetic and feels like a sweet tribute to Ireland if you have Irish heritage which for me makes this name even more appealing.
I love the nickname options you have as well along with having the love featured within the name. I think Clover is lovely and definitely fits in with the nature names that are on trend nowadays. I took Lilia (my daughter) to the farm today I’m certain every other girl had a floral/nature name similarly her nursery is packed with nature names. If Lilia can have friends named Meadow, Primrose, Lavender and encounter children named Maple (we’ve even met a girl (a long time ago) named P.atsy P.umpkin) why not Clover? Clover fits right in! I would not be surprised at all to meet a Clover. People unaware of the explosion nature names may feel surprised by your choice but most won’t be. Also your opinion is what matters not others!

Wishing you all the best :shamrock:

[name_f]Clover[/name_f] is a very interesting, unique and captivating name!
It definitely fits well into the nature themed names that are popular nowadays! I’m enchanted after reading the reason why you love this name for your baby. The nicknames you are considering are absolutely adorable! [name_m]Even[/name_m] if some are not aware of the current naming trends, I think that the similarity with [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], for example, makes [name_f]Clover[/name_f] sound fresh but familiar.
[name_f]Clover[/name_f] feels adventurous, powerful and serene at the same time. I believe it will age well! The connections with nature, love and luck are brilliant.

I adore [name_f]Clover[/name_f] for you! If you love it, please use it!

I think it’s more than usable and you will have loaded it with extra energy and sparkle with all the positive connotation. My only block is Clover Moore - the Lord Mayor of Sydney as mentioned above. She’s a remarkable and admirable person, I’ve just somehow found her name a little off-putting somehow - I think I subconsciously don’t see it as a woman-in-power/leadership name which is kind of messed up but basically my hesitation. To me, it seems to mean you need to be in an artistic or educational role ;), Probably less of an issue where many of your kid’s peers will have nature / word names. I personally prefer other nature/word names like Meadow and Hazel and if I wanted that sound, I would go Cleo/Claudia etc, because I don’t love the “ver” part of the name but I can see outside my POV to see this is a tailored, energetic and happy-making name.
