My favourite names starting with C

I find C difficult. But here are the two I like the most.

Casper- despite the ghost association (Caspar) which the spelling deflects a little… I really love this name, I like that it has a similar feel to Jasper, the sharp r ending along with the softer Cass at the start.

Clove– theres something cute and spunky about Clove, shes less frills and fresher than botanical Clover theres something fresh and exciting about her.
