If you are looking for a name to inspire baby to thrive from their first steps, the gender-neutral Cleo is primed to make history. A modern take on the Ancient Greek verb kleó, Cleo means "to celebrate" or "to make famous." It's a verb that rarely stood on its own, used instead as an invigorating element in other antiquated titles—the most enduring being Kleopatra. Latinised and recognized as Cleopatra in the Latinised spelling, it's an appellation that needs no introduction but will certainly have baby feeling like an unstoppable force. And if following in the footsteps of one of history's most powerful, iconic figures isn't enough, little Cleo should find ample inspiration in the Greek goddess Clio—the muse of poetry and history.
