Chloe (also Chloë, Chloé) is a feminine name for girls, meaning 'blooming' or 'fertility'. It was especially popular in the United Kingdom since about 1990, and peaking in popularity later in the 1990s and during the early years of the 21st century. The name comes from the Greek χλόη (khlóē), of the many names of the Greek goddess Demeter, and refers to the young, green foliage or shoots of plants. The name appears in the New Testament, in 1 Corinthians 1:11 in the context of "the house of Chloe". The French equivalent is spelled Chloé.
In Northern Ireland, Chloe was the most popular name for newborn girls from 1997 to 2002, followed by Emma in 2003. It was also one of the most popular girls' names throughout the UK for the seven years preceding 2002. In 2013, it was the fourth most popular name for girls in Australia.
