Chloris is a girl's name of Greek origin, meaning "green," "greenish-yellow," and "pale green." Not the most colorful of etymologies, but with good reason. Chloris derives from the name "Khloros" in Greek mythology, who was the goddess of vegetation and lived in the Elysian Fields. Chloris's close association with spring, flowers, and new growth gives a new meaning to the name's green-tinted definition. Whether you are a greek mythology buff or not, Chloris is a gorgeous name for your little spring chicken.
