Chloe is a feminine name of Greek origin, meaning "young green shoot," "blooming," or "fertility". It is derived from the Greek name Khlóros, which translates to "greenish-yellow color," referring to the shade of springtime shoots. The name is rooted in Greek mythology, often used as an alternative moniker for Demeter, the Greek goddess of fertility and agriculture. Chloe is a name symbolic of new life and growth, making it fitting for a baby born in spring. The name Chloe originates from the Greek root word "*ǵʰelh₃-," which refers to the green stems, shoots, and foliage on plants in spring. This Greek root is also the origin of the English prefix "chloro-" (chlorine, chlorophyll, etc.). Chloe's meaning is deeply rooted in nature and change, representing blooming and fertility in a time of renewal. The name has been in use since the Protestant Reformation and gained popularity in the 1980s in the United Kingdom and the United States.
