I love the name Clemence. Its seems so elegant and sophisticated, and I love the meaning. Unfortunately, I live in America, where the pronunciation would be butchered.

The listed pronunciation is incorrect. With an accented E it would be "climonsse".

I love this name. It's so beautiful! I'm a french speaker, but I live in the US...I just don't think this name can be worn well here in the States. The English pronunciation doesn't do it justice. :(
