Personal experiences with the name Clover: | Edit

This is my middle name, and I've always loved it. I used to think that if I ever became famous, I would start using it as my main name.

This is my daughter's middle name because I consider her my lucky clover. I have frequently found four leaf covers all my life, but never have I been so lucky as when I plucked her up!

This is my daughter's first name, though she's often called CJ (middle name is Jane). It's pretty and simple but unique. I like that it's not overly feminine like a lot of flower names.
