Comments and insights on the name Clementine: | Edit

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS NAME!!! Calling my daughter this!

-Big fan of this name and have been trying to convince my wife for 8 years that this is a perfect name. EVERY time I say the name she says "Clem the Phlegm" which drives me nuts. Did agree to it as a middle name.

My niece is named Clementine! We originally called her Clem but she is now 8 and we call her Lemon!

Pretty name, but when people hear it they think of that song!
^ I don't think of a song, I think of a really strong character with a great personality.

Seriously who would name their kids Clementine? It's a fruit and it's also a song about a little girl that drowns. Avoid at all costs.

I absolutely love this name to death. I don't think I've ever heard such a lovely, feminine name. The real question is who wouldn't want to name their daughter Clementine?

Personal experiences with the name Clementine: | Edit

My name is Clementine and I personally like to be called Clem. When I was younger my mum wanted me to be a Clemie but when I started school everyone called me Clem and so I just went with it and now I never really get called Clementine anymore.

-I have nothing to do with this name -besides the walking dead game which made me love the name for some unkown reason. Also the nickname clem is just pretty smooth of the tongue i must say. Its also hilarious that half of the sibling names are from TWD. I love our fanbase- by Rocco

My 8 year old is named Clementine Presley (C.P. Is my brothers initials and we wanted to honor him). She goes by Lemon by most people but gets the occasional Clem. She likes her name and we always get complemented. I have never met another Clementine and it makes me happy!
