Name Crush Monday: Clover

Hello everyone! Today's name crush is a charming botanical name that has become the symbol of a nation. In honor of Ireland and St. Patrick's day, we have Clover.

Clover is a sweet and unexpected botanical name. Although you often hear them called shamrocks instead of clovers, these are a symbol for Ireland and a symbol for good luck when they have four leaves. Clover is not in the the top 1000 currently and I think it will remain a rare but refreshing choice. Clover fits in well with current trends even though people haven't caught on to it yet. Clover is a nature name, ends in  -er, contains the attractive letter v, and sounds similar to Chloe, a name that's been popular for awhile. Clover would make a great alternative to Chloe or to the mega-popular Harper. Clo even makes a cute nickname! Something to keep in mind, though, is that Clover is often used as a name for both male and female non-human characters on TV and in books. Some might consider that a drawback but I don't think it shoudl stop you from using the name!
