The clementine is one of the most popular hybrids of the tangerine. It is the hybrid created in 1902 by the French priest Clement Rodier. He obtained the hybrid crossing a tangerine with a sour orange.

The Oxford Book of English Christian Names says that this name "has probably been killed by the song of that name."
-- Kosta  2/21/2006
Nice name, if the bearer can get over being followed by the song wherever she goes.

I love this name but would probably never use it because of the folk song which ruined it.

A very cute name.

I think Clementine is a lovely name. I have known 2 girls with this name. One went by the nickname of Clem and the other was known as Clemmie. I think Clemmie is adorable!
-- Ebba  2/9/2007
Clementine is a nice and lovely name, but the only Clementine I've known was gothic and till now I thought it was gothic and unfortunately it makes me think of goths.
-- Koolgal  3/30/2007
So cute. I like the nickname Clemmie.

The nicknames 'Clem' and 'Clemmie' sound like a lump stuck in the back of someone's throat and also make me think of physical deformity.
-- Anonymous User  11/11/2007
I've got to agree. I don't like those nicknames at all, and Clementine makes me think of that horrible, caterwauling song. Sorry, but I don't like it at all.
-- Katheros  1/1/2008
I think this is a really pretty name. It's very uncommon, yet very classic. It's a name that someone can grow up with. It sounds sweet and elegant, delicate and yet very strong. Also, there's the classic John Ford western movie "My Darling Clementine", with the beautiful actress Cathy Downs portraying Clementine, the elegant and stong heroine.
-- poppiesandsweettea  1/19/2008
I can't stand this name. It makes me think of a hillbilly stripper with a tangerine tan.

Author Sarah Dessen named her daughter Sasha Clementine.
-- websurfer  3/26/2008
Pronounced "kleh-men-teen".
-- MaggieSimpson  4/30/2008
This is one of the strangest names I have heard of. :S
It's a fruit? But it's kinda cool I guess.
-- Anonymous User  5/21/2008
If pronounced the French way (as it is listed as French here) it is kleh-maw(n)-TEEN. Otherwise, I have also heard it kleh-men-TYNE. [noted -ed]
-- ponine  8/23/2008
Lovely name, but I would never have the courage to use it in real life. I don't care for Clemmy at all - I much prefer the nickname Emme.
-- WilderThanBridget  10/20/2008
I used to not really care for this name. Now I like it. I think it's quirky! I don't like the nicknames though - if I was called Clementine, I would go by my full name.
-- Saffine Grace  1/7/2009
Clementine is a song by Elliot Smith.
-- pitseleh  2/7/2009
This name is elegant and ages well.
-- vomiting  2/17/2009
In Britain it's pronounced klem-en-teen, as with the French.

My nine-year-old sister named her hamster this, because the hamster is small and orange like the tangerine. My sister thinks Clementine is the most beautiful name - she's so cute. I think Clementine is lovely and sweet, but Clemmy sounds like clammy and I would never go there. Yeah, I would name my daughter Clementine.

I absolutely love this name, but would never give it to a child, because the folk song ruined it.

Clementine is both a sweet country favourite and a not uncommon choice amongst the upper middle class in English speaking countries.
Clementine is a classic name.

'Clémentine' was an animated television series for children in France. The series is considered a cult classic.
-- vomiting  12/10/2009
I don't have anything against this name, and I actually don't mind the folk song. The only reason I couldn't name my kid this is because of the fruit. I love clementines and I eat them all the time. It's strange to think of a person with the same name.
-- mecoyle  1/6/2010
I used to not like it but now I think it's cute.
-- Chrila96  10/5/2010
There is a character named Clementine on the PBS children's animated show, Caillou.
-- Anonymous User  10/7/2010
I like it. It may be a little old fashion but as a middle name, I would use it! Very lovely.
-- italiannames  2/26/2011
I love this name. Has a balanced blend of consonants and vowels and sounds beautiful. Really, a folk song from 150 years ago doesn't ruin this name for me. It is not sung anywhere anymore.
-- JW41926  4/14/2011
I don't like this name. To me it sounds stuffy, is spelled like the fruit, and reminds me of Clemson University.
-- GibsonGirl  9/7/2011
Clementine is only a nice name when it is pronounced the French way and not diminished at all. The nicknames Clem and Clemmie make me think of 'clammy', which is not what I want to associate a name with. Also, Clem rhymes with 'phlegm'. I much prefer the form Clémence. However, I don't think I would ever use either of these names for any of my children in the future, although perhaps one of them as a middle name if I happen to marry a French man.

Australian musician Megan Washington has a song on her first album called 'Clementine'. It's a really pretty song and has a great video.

This name is so pretty. Love, Love, Love it.

Clementine of Orleans (1817-1907) was the fourth daughter of King Louis Philippe I of France and his wife Maria Amalia of Neaples and Sicily. She later became the mother of Ferdinand I, the Tsar of Bulgaria.

I first heard this name on the children’s cartoon Caillou; I believe he had a friend named Clementine. I always thought it was a weird name because of its association with fruit but I’ve come around to it. I think it’s very cute, sweet, and a nice name overall- may be a little lengthy for some though.
-- Poco  9/11/2012
I actually know a little girl called this... but her last name is actually Darling! Clementine Darling. My! I have always heard it pronounced to rhyme with line.
-- thesnowwhiterose  5/7/2013
The name Clementine was given to 204 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

In the French movie "17 Girls" (or "17 filles") there is a character named Clémentine and they call her Clem. After watching the movie I fell in love with the name. Also the way they say it in the movie (because it is in French) is absolutely adorable!
