So sorry to all the Chloes out there but anything associated with the Kardashians is an absolute no go! Although I will admit if I met a few nice Chloes that might change my mind. I just don't know any.

Chloe is a beautiful, sweet name. I know a girl called Chloe and she is friendly, sweet and pretty. I would definitely name my child this, along with Isabelle if I had twins. When I was younger, I named a sandy-haired, emerald-eyed doll Chloe. Most people think of Chloes as having light skin, blonde hair, light eyes and a serious face, but the Chloe I know has black hair, black eyes, coffee-coloured skin and a big grin. I really like the meaning of Chloe — 'green shoot' — because it reminds me of the first trace of spring after a long, cold winter. If your daughter was born in late February/ early March and you wanted to name her after the first trace of spring, instead of naming her Spring or Snowdrop, you could name her Chloe. And if it was twins, Chloe and Isabelle, obviously.

My daughter is named Chloe Rose. She is as beautiful as it sounds. I might be a bit biased, but it is true. Also, there are a lot of Chloes around now. She has one in almost every class or on every team. Nicknames - Clo, Clo-Clo, C-Lo. I asked and she likes her name, except that people always misspell it. People tell her the "Ch" should be pronounced like the Ch in Chocolate, she tells them they need to go back to sCHool and they don't get to celebrate CHristmas.

I think this name is really cute and "posh" sounding. It's quite common, especially with a "C" instead of a "K" (I prefer the former). Most Chloe's I've known in real life haven't been very good/nice people, but there are some pretty cool celebrities with this name.

I love the name Chloe as it is my name. Growing up as a child (in the late 80's), there were no other girls who had the name and many people couldn't pronounce it (strange, I know). As I grew up I learned to love my name as it was unique to me and I was named after my grandmother (Chlorine). Anyhow, nicknames I have are Coco (because I am classy and stylish), Clo Clo, Lo Lo and Clo.

I went to school with the most beautiful girl named Chloe. She was the only person I ever met with this name. I had a plan to name my future child Chloe until I saw that it is one of the most popular names out there right now. I don't like following trends. It's just funny to me that it is so popular. It must be a new thing because when I was in school there was one Chloe in the whole high school (that I knew of) and it was that gorgeous girl I speak of.

Chloe is my name, and I never really liked it. My parents almost named me Victoria, which I would have preferred because I feel like more of a Tori than a Chloe. The shape of the word kind of annoys me, and it sounds like the name of a little girl at her third birthday party with curly pigtails. I usually go by my first name and middle name (Chloe Rose) because it sounds more mature.

Don't listen to everyone who says girls named Chloe don't have personalities. That's ridiculous! You can't possibly generalize based on a name. I think Chloe is a bright, intelligent, colorful name that works no matter how old you are or what color your hair is (come on people)! Chloe for the win!

I think of Chloe's with dark hair and kinda dark features. Only met one blonde Chloe and I don't think it fits. I'm not a fan of the accented names in America either. I think Chloe is more straight forward. Also, Khloe is plain trashy (sorry Khloé Kardashian!). I honestly think this name is harsh to pronounce and sounds extremely childish. I would prefer Cleo, if anything. I can't believe my parents chose this for my sister as they carefully chose a name for me that could age well.

Alright, so to be completely honest, I hate how every single one of the other Chloe's are blonde, and brainless... My name is Chloé, the French version but Chloé nonetheless. My name is usually thought of as whiny brats, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and a whole popular vibe to them... I'm here to say that not all of us Chloe's are like that. In fact I have brown hair, blue grey green eyes (which are a conversation on their own) and yes, I'm thin, but I'm of French decent, so thin and petite fit right in along there. But then there's the thought that all of us Chloe's are brainless. Well, let me tell you, I may not be the best at math or spelling, but science is a strong passion of mine. So is music, rather classical or some fun jazz, or even opera! Art is also a major thing in my life, rather it be with a brush or ballet. As for the peppy look... It's a fashion style that looks best on short petite girls. So yeah, I like that style, but you know what?... I also love quirky styles too. So next time you make an opinion based on the name of a person you know, let them know it's because of that person. Because some people may have prissy names... But they could end up being the coolest people you ever meet.

I'm not too fond of this name. In my experience, every 'Chloe' I have ever met whether they be a character from a book, a tv show, movie or, in real life all had the same personality; all beauty, no brains, preppy, stuck up, FAKE PERSONALITY.

Sorry, but I really can't help but think of a female who may have beauty but has no brains (meaning common sense) and is an all around FAKE. Someone whom I would despise.
I've met 13 different Chloes in my lifetime from various events and all of their personalities were the same or at least, nearly the same.
Also the name alone just sounds stuck up, and too preppy.

The name Chloe comes off as sounding very annoying. Placed on an attractive, preppy, fake, whiny type girl who's used to getting whatever she wants instead of having respect for others and earning the things she has.
A Chloe would chip a nail and freak or if a little bit of mud got onto them, they would freak.

It's surprising that it's supposedly so "popular" in the USA considering that I've never met a Chloe in my life. However, I think that Chloe isn't the best name because many people mispronounce it.

My name is Chloe Elyse. I used to hate my name because when I was little (I'm 22) it was very unpopular and I couldn't get any of those personalized knick-knacks like license plates or pens with my name on them. I love my name now though, even though I don't like how popular it's gotten. I like being uncommon! And I have a bear of an Italian last name, so I think my mother did a wonderful job coming up with a middle name that connected my first and last together gracefully.

This name is one of the worst names ever when used as a baby name. Can you just think harder about it? C'mon people, there's nothing special about this name. Nor the sound or meaning is amusing. The meaning only means GRASS or LAWN in Greek. How embarrassing to know that you have a name that means grass. The sound is blah as well, let me think of a rhyming word..."Glowing", yet the name is very DIM. I mean there are a bunch of other rhyming words but I'm just trying to give you my opinion. It's time people got a realization of this name and also it decreases in popularity.

I adore the name Chloe. I used to absolutely hate it with a passion, but now it's in my top 5. And people, it matures quite well. It was in the top 1000 for 1900. I hate this whole "if it ends in "-E" it's cutesy" thing. What about Bethany, Emily, and Rosalie? Do those names age poorly? I think we should look at the whole name and not just its ending.

And about its popularity, I do think it's rather common. It's in the top 10 for the U.S., and I know four Chloes. I still love the name, and I am not bothered by its popularity. It's popular for a reason, it's a great name! (:

In all honesty, I really dislike this name. It's just... cheap. It's too common and overused. Well I guess it would be a alright name on a young girl, but think about it - when she gets to be like forty or something, will it sound so good then? How about when she's a grandmother? Yeah, not my kind of name. Sorry, no offense intended.

This name can mature easily, and can suit many different types of girls. It has a long history behind it, and it's modern without being along the same lines as "Jayden" and "Nevaeh".

That being said, I don't like it. There's just something about it that I find unattractive. I recently learned that my mom wanted to call me Chloe, and I'm glad she didn't, though I didn't get a much better deal with "Destiny".

Interesting, my name is Chloe and all of you who described what you think Chloe would look like could almost be describing me. I have dark blond, curly hair, slim build, pale skin, and hazel eyes. Also, I'm 20, and I can say that yes it is a name that can mature with you, all you need is to have met a mature Chloe to know that. The name, I was told by friends who speak Greek as their native language, means young grass. Personally I wasn't impressed by the literal meaning, but I tend to think of it as representing hope, like the small green shoots that are the first signs of spring. Having this name has definitely shaped the way I view myself, as a unique individual and someone who has the ability to be a bringer of hope.

Chloe is an extremely pretty name and one hundred years ago it was elegant, classy and very rare.

BUT unfortunately today it is not only horribly common, it is also most common amongst trashy families trying to sound better than they are. As a result, teenage Chloes today tend to be skanky little gutter-snipes.

It's sad, because they've ruined a really lovely name.

Chloe. I like the way it rolls off my tongue but it's just so darn popular!

My name is Chloe. Honestly it's not that popular, and when I was like ten I hated this name. Now I like it more, and it is a bit of a hard name to carry, since every substitute teacher I've ever had has told me that their dog, car or hamster has this name. But I like it now, I think it sounds mature and really cool.

I think the name Chloe sounds beautiful. It is my best friends name and she happens to be the only person I know with it. Some people do have a hard time pronouncing it but I think its a modern and classic name. My friend happens to be very edgy and out there but the name itself presents a more refined elegance and quietness in my opinion. For a nickname I call her Clo but I agree there aren't many choices.

My name is Chloe and although I am still young, I have never had a problem with my name. I think it's cute. I have never met another Chloe in my life, but I worry that every little kid will be called Chloe and it will turn into the new Jessica. Sometimes people have had a problem with the spelling and how people pronounce it. I am often called Cho-lee, which is very annoying. Also, it's not a name you can easily come up with a nickname for.

Mmmm, I REALLY like this name. It's solid to me, unique without being weird. It's beautiful without being presumptiously high and haughty. It's simple yet not at all boring. I've only met one Chloe who's a toddler, but undoubtedly with it's popularity once you name your daughter this, you will meet many many more. I think popular names are that for a reason though, many people appreciate them!

I've met a couple of Chloe's in my lifetime and they were all very nice people but I agree that it's too sweet. Reminds me of a pink cloud. Bleh. Or cotton candy.

You can't grow into it because it has nothing else to mature into. Even the similar name Zoë gives an air of uniqueness and an impression that what you see isn't always what you get.

But Chloe? Come on. It so predictable.

In my opinion, one of the most pretentious names ever. It sounds like a name for a girl who is sort of harshly pretty and thinks she's above everyone else for no good reason.

I'm surprised this name isn't French.

I think the name Chloe is timeless. In my lifetime I have only met two Chloes. Should I have a girl, I would surely name her Chloe Elizabeth. Not to mention, Chloe is the name of a very nice smelling perfume!

Actually, even WITH the Diaeresis, the name is still pronounced Chlo-ee. The Diaeresis only stresses the 'e' even more. I have a second cousin named Chloe', and people often call her klo-ay, because of the Diaeresis. I have a friend who is a college English professor, and even she agrees that the Diaeresis stresses the 'e' more, ergo, not making the name pronounced klo-ay. It's still chlo-ee.

The name Chloe makes me picture a young, slender, pale woman with sandy-colored hair down to her chin line who has light eyes and wears little or no make-up, dresses in white, light pink, light blue, and other light colors, and looks a little untouchable and unapproachable, like she's not fully human. She looks very neat and clean, and looks like she could use a proper meal and something to put a smile on her serious face. The name sounds much softer than Zoë, but I'm not big on the ''OH-ee'' sound.

jasmineenimsaj  3/2/2008

The spelling with the Diaeresis is the French form of this name, which is pronounced as [xlɔe'] rather than [klɔ:wi] as in English. This name is not French, though when I was younger, I thought it was.

I believe it bears some relationship to the name Chloris, as the first four letters are the same and both have some relation to the colour green, though I am entirely uncertain as per their actual deriviation.

I forgot to mention in the previous comment that this is a lovely name, though it is a bit short and might need the accompanyment of something a little longer. Perhaps Chloe Maria or Chloe Alexandra. The second name should presumably end with an a.

I would definitely name my daughter this, though I have never before met an actual Chloe and I think it is rare where I live (North Carolina).

Just a thought: If one wishes to mention that a name is common or rare where one lives, a notation of where that is would not be amiss.

Chloe was a woman, a Christian, of either Corinth or Ephesus. Writing to the Corinthians from Ephesus, Paul noted that he had heard of dissension in their church from "Chloe's people" (1 Corinthians 1:11). Chloe is not mentioned anywhere else in the Bible.

This is my name and to be honest, I would have much preferred to be called something more traditional, like Elizabeth or Victoria. It's just too common now and a bit stereotyped, plus a lot of people misspell it, which is irritating.

My best friend's name is Chloe and that's the only person I know or have heard of (other than the designer) with this name. So I don't see how it's too popular. Of course now that I said that it will become the next Ashley (eww). It reminds me of the goddess Zoe, which in turn makes me think of strength. So I totally disagree with the previous commentors that say that it is too "cutesy". I love my amazing friend's name.

When pronounced with a Japanese accent, Chloe tends to sound like "kuroi", or the color black. In that sense it sounds kind of cute. Opens up quite a few puns and wordplay.

The origin of the name Chloe is Greek and means "green shoot" (or something close) so I have no idea where you got the idea that it is French other than the fashion label.

I think it is sweet sounding, but seems far too youthful. I think that spelling it with the trema/diareses (Chloë) not only makes it sound more mature, but also hints that it is not pronounced "Chlo" to the uninformed. :-)

Personally, I love the name, I have only met a single person bearing that name. And she tells me it's pronounced KLOH-AY, even though there is no accent above the e. I think both Chloe & Chloé are beautiful names.

Recently, after hearing this name on the news, I really began to love it! It is not very popular in my area, which makes it all the more attractive. I think there is one Chloe in the whole of my sister's elementary school, which holds around 500 or so children. It has an undeniably cute sound, and is somehow intriguing, elegant, and girlish all at once.

There was a rather corny popular song about a man who searched through the swamps for a woman named Chloë.

There is also a rather amusing limerick:
For the tenth time, dull Daphnis, said Chloë,
You have told me my bosom is snoë.
You have made such fine verse on
Each part of my person;
Now do something!
There's a good boë!

I really like the name, and think it's cute and sweet. But, if I think about this name for a bit, I start thinking that the combination of the OE sound and the EE sound make the name have a strange quality. Like something is muddy, someone is Chloe. The same is true for Zoe.

I disagree with the people who think this name cannot grow with a child. Although it does have a sweet, youthful tone, I think it is also extremely elegant. I have met an elderly woman named Chloe, and I thought it was perfect for her. The unfortunate thing is that this name is so popular. I could never feel justified in giving a child a name that so many other people have.

This classical name, like Emily, has been mauled by popularity. So many people bear it it is actually refreshing to hear something different: even if it is not a classic. Just for once I'd love to hear of a kid given a name that is slightly unusual and not following the current trend of the day.

I have to say that this name is truly a disgrace! Doesn't it just SCREAM clown to you? This name is bromidic, lacks originality and definitely cannot grow with your child. Why won't you monotonous people use something beautiful like Gaia, Athena, Ariadne and Persephone? They are all Greek mythological names, plus sound WAY better than this disingenuous fad to the moon and back! Anyone care to challenge me, be my guest.
