Clementine

I’ve liked Clementine for a long while, three or four years, at least.  And I’ve tried a whole host of combos to try to compliment her.  Clementine Lily Elinor is the standing combo. I like that her initials would mimic her first name: CLEM.  But it took a long time to get to her (and I’m still not entirely taken with the combo, someone sell it to me!)

Here’s some of the predecessors:

Clementine Lila Elspeth
Clementine India Alice
Clementine Lily Ariadne
Clementine Frances Isobel
Clementine Alice Isobel
Clementine Isobel Maud
Clementine Maud Leonora
Clementine Rosalind Maud
Clementine Lilith Zsofia
Clementine Lucy Aurelia
Clementine Lily Agnes
Clementine Lucy Elspeth
Clementine Rosalind Verity
Clementine Alice Maude
Clementine Juno Axelle
Clementine Beatrix Lily
Clementine Louisa Maud
Clementine Juno Viola
Clementine Violet Maud
Clementine Lucy Kathleen
Clementine Lily Matilde
Clementine Lucy Maud
Clementine Lucy Annabel
Clementine Ariadne Grace

 

And those are just the winners from the polls!  I’ve probably run through a thousand combos trying to pair Clementine up. She’s tough to pair. Nature names sometimes look silly next to her, and other things are too ornate, she’s pretty frilly herself.  I think Clementine Lily Elinor is sleek, rather polished and works well as a set. Lily isn’t too ridiculous next to fruity Clementine and honors Grandma Lily/Lilian too  (Clementine Lilian’s too L heavy for me).   I’m afraid Clementine’s going to get hot soon, so I’ve  kind of pushed her down my lists a good bit. What do you all think of Clementine?  Do you think she’s going to jump up the charts a fair bit or no? Should I move her back up into a working position or keep her down? And if I move her back up, who should I take off the list? Give me your thoughts, any & all are welcome! 

 

 As Usual, Thanks a million!
