("Khloris" or ÷ëùñéò, from "Khloros" or ÷ëùñïò, meaning "greenish-yellow", "pale green", "pale", "pallid" or "fresh")

Is it just me or, written down, does the name Chloris remind you of the word Chthonic or some horrible foot disease? Sorry. Had to be said.

Really? I kind of like the name Chloris. The nymph Chloris appears in that painting "Primavera" by Botticelli.

This would make an EXCELLENT name for a mouthwash.

I think it's a very mature-sounding name. On a side note, these comments are hilarious.

I like this name. And I agree, these comments are very funny.

If you just change or add a few letters to the name Chloris, you get Chlorine.

Chlorine in gas form is green, so it probably derived its name from this.

Chloris sounds like a kind of fish. Honestly.

I kind of like this name, except for the fact that it makes me think of 'chlorine.'

It sounds like a disease to me, probably because of cholera, and the suffix "itis" meaning "to swell," which is frequently used in disease names.

I agree with the mouthwash thing. This name reminds me of chlorophyll and chlorine too. Ick. Usually I'm tolerant and open-minded toward names like this, but ICK!

Chloris is the Greek variant of Flora, the Roman goddess of the flowers and the spring.

Poor neglected Chloris, nobody loves you. Don't worry, I appreciate your tart, snarky charms!

I too can see the name Chloris on mouthwash, dish soap, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, etc. It's quite... sciency as well. Chloroplast, chlorine, and all that good stuff. The "Chl" part also can sound a bit icky and phlegm-y.

I like it. Among the many chloro- words, I can't believe no one's mentioned CHLOROFORM, which is unfortunate. I don't think words that don't derive from Chloris are good arguments against this name. Anyway, in this age of anything-goes naming (see Nevaeh, Braelynn etc.) this would be an okay name, but it would sound weird to scientists. I think this is a GREAT middle name, as green is my favorite colour, and I like vegetation.

I named a character in a book I'm writing this. But I pronounce it "chlo (rhymes with glow)-or-ris)"
