I personally like Cliona more than Fiona, but I definitely don't dislike Fiona. It's just my opinion.

brazile Says:


The correct pronunciation is pretty, but it would be ripe for much-less-pretty mistakes. Even if people got it right, it sounds a bit like "cleaner". Not a great choice.

Licialou Says:


Really? My toddler is named Fiona and everyone loves her name. So clearly, I disagree. Cliona sounds like a disease or a made up mess. Leona is pretty, but not Cliona.

RoddyThlayli Says:


This is such a cool name- I like the spelling Cliodhna also. They're both so much prettier than Fiona.
