Nicknames for Clementine

I love the name [name]Clementine[/name]. But not so much the nicknames [name]Clem[/name] or [name]Clemmy[/name]. Reminds me of clams, or clammy hands. I just thought of [name]Minty[/name], but that’s a stretch. Anybody got anything better?

I kind of love [name]Minty[/name]! I had a great-aunt [name]Minty[/name] :slight_smile: I don’t think it’s a stretch at all. Apart from [name]Clem[/name]/[name]Clemmie[/name], the only other ones I can think of are Teeny/[name]Tina[/name], neither of which are all that appealing. [name]Mina[/name] might work but it’s definitely a stretch. I’d go with [name]Minty[/name]!

I was just thinking about this last night, and came up with [name]Clea[/name], [name]Em[/name], [name]Emme[/name], and I recall that [name]Lola[/name] once mentioned [name]Cleo[/name] as a possibility. I think [name]Clementine[/name] is great! :slight_smile:

If you can’t tolerate the nickname [name]Clem[/name], I wouldn’t name her [name]Clementine[/name]. Her peers might use the nickname, whether you like it or not.

Btw, I think [name]Clementine[/name] is a great name!

Hmm, [name]Cleo[/name] is a nice idea! I’m a little embarrassed that I never thought of [name]Em[/name], but that is rather bland. [name]Tina[/name]/Teeny are unappealing, just dated I guess. I’m liking [name]Minty[/name] and [name]Cleo[/name].

Yeah I am not crazy about [name]Clem[/name] either… Or [name]Minty[/name] (sorry!)

I like [name]Cleo[/name] and [name]Tina[/name] as suggestions.

What about [name]Minnie[/name]?

[name]Minnie[/name] is cute, but I just think of the mouse (I live right by Disneyland).

[name]Love[/name] [name]Minty[/name]!
There’s also [name]Minnie[/name], [name]Mina[/name], [name]Cleo[/name], [name]Tina[/name], [name]Lennie[/name]
I know 3 Clementines - One goes by [name]Lennie[/name], one my [name]Clem[/name], and one by plain ol’ [name]Clementine[/name].
It’s only 3 syllables long, so you might have more luck getting people to call her by her full name, if that’s what you want :slight_smile:

Wow, you know three Clementines? I’ve never met one! That’s encouraging that one of them goes by [name]Clementine[/name] in full, I think I would prefer that.

I love [name]Cleo[/name] as a nn for the lovely [name]Clementine[/name]. But I talked to a British mom several years ago who told me that [name]Clementine[/name] nn [name]Clemmie[/name] was all the rage among probably hipster or yuppie parents in [name]Britain[/name]. She seemed very cool - her husband was in the film industry and they were in L.A. for just a year or two. She also told me that [name]Rose[/name] nn [name]Rosie[/name] was really cool. Her daughter’s name was [name]Harriet[/name] nn [name]Harry[/name].
