I think Clover is gorgeous! I've always loved 'Matreiya' (ma-tray-ah) for a boy but everyone looked at me like I was from outer-space... plus it's the name of the 'fat' buddha so I guess it might be a little bit like naming your son Jesus *shrug*
anyway I had a girl so.....
I love Acacia for a girl, but there's a prison in WA with the same name :-(
Also like Malachi (sp?) for a boy, i think its pron Mal-ak-eye. and Mairead or Satine for a girl.
"Dorian"... from "The Picture of Dorian Gray".
I'm also fond of "d'Artagnan", and another one who likes "Anakin" (but only in Star Wars, not in real life!).
I have known a pippin and emerald both girls.
Love the idea of using pippin but never could.
I know a d'Artagnan. For what it's worth he despises his name, and goes by another.
I am fond of Grover for a boy, but everyone kept mentioning the muppet, rather than thinking of the US president, or the jazz musician.
I think Clover is mine too. Except I would use it, but DP hates it.
For us, it's names like Ajax, Loki etc. We want our babies to have middle names of gods/goddesses and/or mortal heroes. DP loves Ajax, which I think is cute but it reminds me of spray and wipe! Ajax was the strongest mortal ever, Loki is the god of mischief. We also have Iris, the goddess of the rainbow and Rhea, the Greek goddess of fertility, chosen for girl middle names!
