    Honestly- the magazine, and a cat.

    Not that it matters that's just what came to mind initially. It's the kind of name that could grow on me.

    Same here. I'd prefer a longer name and Cleo as the nickname.

    Default What do you think when you hear the name Cleo?

    A quick google says Cleo is a name of Greek origin meaning to praise or acclaim. I think it's quite a nice meaning behind a name.

    DH has a friend called Cleo. She's a very successful woman who runs her own business and has won both national and international awards in her field. When he talks about her I don't think anything about her name, negative or otherwise. It's not an out there name by any stretch and I would much rather call my kid Cleo than Cleopatra! There are far worse names people call their kids these days.

    Also DHs family had a cocker spaniel called Cleo for years when I first met him eons ago. When I hear anyone say Cleo I think if his friend, not his family's dog.

    I think of the magazine.

    I think it's an elegant and fairly strong name.

    Love it! It's my friend's daughter name, (though it's spelt differently) and I think it's lovely.

    I think of Dr Clio Cresswell. She used to be on tv a fair bit. She's a mathematician.
    I wouldn't worry about the association with the magazine because it's closing, so your kid's contemporaries won't know it.
    I picked my daughter's middle name from a thread on here and lots of people said they associated it with a dog's name (scout), but I love it and her name just makes me so happy
