Chloe - Girl Name

Guest Author - Nancy Man

The name Chloe is based on a Greek name (Khloe) that means "green shoot." The name was originally one of the many epithets of the Greek goddess Demeter, goddess of the harvest and the seasons. It was also mentioned briefly in the New Testament by Paul.

The name is pronounced KLO-ee. (The same way the Greek names Phoebe, Xanthe and Zoe are pronounced FEE-bee, ZAN-thee and ZO-ee -- with that long E sound at the end.)

The name Chloe was moderately popular at the start of the 20th century in the U.S., but steadily fell out of fashion after that point. By the early 1940s, it had fallen out of the top 1,000 entirely. In the early 1980s, it was suddently revived. Here's how the name has ranked over the last two decades:
  • 2009 - 9th most popular baby girl name in the U.S.
  • 2008 - 10th
  • 2007 - 16th
  • 2006 - 18th
  • 2005 - 19th
  • 2004 - 23rd
  • 2003 - 24th
  • 2002 - 25th
  • 2001 - 30th
  • 2000 - 38th
  • 1999 - 63rd
  • 1998 - 87th
  • 1997 - 109th
  • 1996 - 112nd
  • 1995 - 136th
  • 1994 - 155th
  • 1993 - 158th
  • 1992 - 161st
  • 1991 - 179th
  • 1990 - 212nd


The spelling Khloe has also become quite trendy in the U.S. recently:
  • 2009 - 95th most popular baby girl name in the U.S.
  • 2008 - 196th
  • 2007 - 666th
  • 2006 - 961st


Chloe is also popular in other countries and regions such as Australia, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada and France.

  • Chloe Agnew (b. 1989), Irish singer
  • Chloe Dao (b. 1972), American fashion designer
