Gender: F Meaning of Clementine: "mild, merciful" Origin of Clementine: French feminine version of Clement, Latin

Clementine is a Nameberry favorite though it hasn't appeared on the U.S. Top 1000 for more than half a century. Still, its style value may mean there are more Clementines than you might guess in your neighborhood -- it may be a name that raises Mom's eyebrows, but it won't surprise your friends.

If "Oh, My Darlin'" still rings too loudly in your ears, consider pronouncing Clementine as Clementeen -- or even using Clementina, which rhymes with Christina. Stylish Claudia Schiffer chose Clementine for her daughter, as did Ethan Hawke and Rachel Griffiths, and Kate Winslet played one in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And for a kid reference--there's a Muppet named Clementine.

A female variation of the even-more-unusual Clement, Clementine's meaning suggests peace and happiness, a lovely image. Other girls' names with similar meanings: Beatrice, Felicity, Hilary, Arcadia, Irina, and Mercy.

Clementine is currently just outside the Top 100 in France.
