I really like it. I don’t think it is that far removed from [name]Patricia[/name] and [name]Theodora[/name]. While [name]Patricia[/name] has been popular in its time, [name]Theodora[/name] and [name]Cleopatra[/name] are underappreciated.

I hope you go for it! Much nicer than Maddyson!


Are you looking for the [name]Cleo[/name] nickname? Personally, I think [name]Cleopatra[/name] is too defined by the person of the past to be accessible today. [name]Cleopatra[/name], in my opinion, is like Tutankhamen or [name]Hannibal[/name], you know - very defined by that particular historical person. Therefore, I would not use the name myself, nor would I comfortably recommend it to another person.

Granted, the flow of the name is very pretty, feminine, yet strong - I see why it appeals! Maybe [name]Cliantha[/name] “[name]Clio[/name]” might work?
