    I love Esme and Ismene but Ismay sounds too much like dismay to me. Sorry.

    I like it! I agree that Cleo has a bit of a cat vibe and I prefer Esme to Ismay, but I still like the name.

    I guess I can see the "dismay" thing, but I don't hear it. I'm pronouncing Ismay as IHZ-may.

    Cleo Ismay is pretty! I couldn't figure out where I'd heard Ismay before until it suddenly dawned on me--J. Bruce Ismay, one of the managers of the White Star Line and the man who decided to reduce the number of lifeboats aboard the Titanic. So not a great association, but I don't think that most people would be aware of it.

    And, yes, it's pronounced more like IHZ-may than IS-may.
