The name Chloe is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "young green shoot". Chloe is ranked #22 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Bible Names for Girls and discussed in our forums with posts like "Girls Makeover - Two Middles".

From the experts:

Considerably more dynamic than most of the other Greek-based romantic literary names of the seventeenth century, Chloe is a pretty springtime name symbolizing new growth, though by no means as fresh as it once was. Though it's down a bit from its all-time peak position of Number 9 in 2009, it's still a popular choice as well as one of the most Baby-Names-for-Girls">classic names for girls. Chloe has been also mega-popular throughout Great Britain, Australia, and Canada. The creative spelling Khloe has been moving up as well, thanks solely to the Kardashian klan.

While Chloe has not been used for any recent celebrity babies, it is the name of the now-grown daughters of Olivia Newton-John and of Candice Bergen and the late French film director Louis Malle. Actress and style leader Chloe Sevigny is another high-profile bearer, as is rising young star Chloe Grace Moretz.

Chloe appeared in Greek mythology as an alternative name for the goddess of agriculture and fertility, Demeter, and in the Greek pastoral romance Daphnis and Chloe. It is also mentioned in the New Testament, appears in Uncle Tom's Cabin, and is the real name of Nobel prize-winning writer Toni Morrison.
