Crisp and serene, Cleve is a wonderfully earthy title for the baby who’s an elemental force of nature. A masculine name of Old and Middle English origins, Cleve derives from cleove, a place descriptor meaning “land of cliffs,” “hilly area,” and “slope.” Cleve is the short form of Cleveland, a well-known place name found throughout the US, UK, and Australia. Like names such as Trent, Axel, Ace, and Clint, to list a few, Cleve comes in strong with those strapping, studly vibes that will add to baby’s reputable charm.
