Chloe like names
I still love the name Chloe.
I have tried not to love it due to it's mega star status, but I just do.
Any suggestions for "Chloe' like names?
My best Chloe like name is Phoebe. Same # of syllables, and ends with 'ee'.
But I think perhaps it's the hard "K" sound I like. Just can't love Cleo- probably because we know a cat called Cleo.
I prefer 1-2 syllable names, 3 if it isn't too frilly. (Eg I do like Annabel)Phoebe Eliza Grace arrived after 2 Years of IVF

I understand how you feel about Chloe. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I'd use it in a heartbeat were it not for the popularity. I had a friend named Chloe in kindergarden, and even then I realised what a cool name it was...so much so that when I went to camp that following summer, I convinced everyone I went by Chloe.
There's nothing that compares, and I doubt you'll find something you love as much...Here are some suggestions, anyway.
How about Claudie? French variation of Claudia. Not as soft and sweet as Sylvie.
Clotilde is lovely but maybe too square for anyone in the universe but me.
Florie / Flory
Instead of Cleo, there is Clio, which is pronounced the same, but different origin.
Courtney. Obviously, this is an 80s throwback, but there is something delightfully crisp about it. I imagine it got popular in its heyday for the same reason Chloe has gotten popular now. It's declined enough in popularity that I think it could actually sound fresh again.
Coline. A French exchange student that attended my high school was named this, and I always thought it was harder and cooler sounding than Colleen.
Corly. Is this a name or did I just make it up?
