This is a good name for a cat (no offense to people who have this name). My cat is named Cleo.

Cléo de Mérode (born Cléopatra) was a French dancer of the Belle Époque. In 1896, King Léopold II attended the ballet, saw Mérode dance and fell in love with her. She is a legendary beautiful woman.

Lovely name if it wasn't for the fraud psychic Miss Cleo. "The cards never lie!"

Cute name!

This is a great name. It's not common. It sounds sophisticated and classy.

This name could be male, because it was my great-grandfather's middle name. It was going to be my sister's name, too, in honour of him, but she was stillborn.

I really like this name, it's a nice change from Chloe. I had a cat named Cleo once so I'm not sure I'd use it for a child.

Cleo, short for Cleopatra, was the villainess of the Tod Browning film "Freaks". She was a beautiful trapeze artist at a circus, who plots to marry and kill one of the sideshow performers, a "freak", so she can get his vast fortune. Cleo was played by Olga Baclonova. This is an amazing movie, especially considering it was made in 1931. It was banned in the UK for thirty years, and was rediscovered in the 1970's and has since become a cult classic.

My sister is named Cleo & she likes having an unusual, but not odd, name. If people ask how to spell it she says "like the magazine" - but she totally hates it when people read it as Chloe, the two names do look/sound pretty different!

I like this name. It sounds better than Cleopatra. Unlike that name, Cleo is unpretentious and perfectly fine as a first name. However, the Miss Cleo association might be too much for some people.

Could also be a nickname for other names that begin with Cleo-, like Cleodora, Cleone, Cleocharia etc, which, in contrast to Cleopatra, are all pretty unusual names.

Cleo is one of the main characters in the TV show "H2O: Just Add Water." She is a mermaid who has the power to move water with her mind (telekinesis for water, if you will). Cleo is played by Phoebe Tonkin, and she and her love interest Lewis are my favorite characters in the fun and awesome series.

Cleo Laine great British jazz singer.

Huh. I always thought that this was masculine. Must be because of the o-end.
I also think that this would be cute on a cat.

Cleo is an Australian women's interest magazine.

Hmm. I think of this as being more of a cat's name; though I actually really love it. I also gave a character in my novel this name. It's a pretty name, but it does sound better suited to a pet.

Famous British jazz singer Cleo Laine (b. 1927) had the birth name Clementina Dinah Campbell.

The name Cleo was given to 119 baby girls born in the US in 2012. It's a nice, quirky, unique name that should age well and is in my opinion a great alternative to the way too popular Chloe.

Cleo is a stubborn but friendly dog on the children's television program and book series "Clifford the Big Red Dog".

I named my tabby cat Cleo :) She's darling, and suits the name to a tee! Would make a wonderful human name as well.

I think the name Cleo sounds like a girl who likes pink and ballet. I also think the name Cleo sounds like a girl who is very, very, very kind and nice.
crystalchiara  8/3/2014
Cleo is really a cute & quirky name. :) I love the name Cleo! It's way more stylish & cooler than Chloe! All in all, Cleo is a darling name. ^-^

I think the name Cleo can be used on a boy.

Cleo name comes from the Greek Cleopas. So it may be a male name. My mum's cat is named Cleo, it's a boy. :)

This is my name, some days I hate it some days I love it, it's unusual and I have only came across 2 other people (both girls like myself) with the name in my whole 18 years. Understandably people spell it "Clio" and even call me "Chloe" and unfortunately I sometimes get the "Renault" shout doesn't really offend after all it's only a name, and a fun one at that, and I prefer this over something boring and common.

I love the name Cleo because it's very uncommon and sweet sounding. It's definitely a bit quirky though.

There is a very beautiful Brazillian actress named Cléo Pires.

Cleo isn't just a feminine name, it should be changed to Feminine and Masculine, in fact my grandpa's name was Cleo.

Cleo is also used in France. [noted -ed]

A unisex name. In the case of males it was originally short for Cleophas or Cleophus meaning "vision of glory." Well used for males in French speaking cultures and historically by African Americans. Variant Clio. [noted -ed]
