  • "We named our son Clive, and we love it. For living in North America it's a great name because it is very uncommon, but not strange. Whenever someone asks us what our son's name is we get overwhelmingly posive responses. We're both teachers, and we found it hard for us to find a name for our son. Because "Clive" is so uncommon over here neither of us had any negative experiences with the name!" Feb. 24, 2009: Report as inappropriate
