Clem or Clement is an almost unique name. I tell people that it's a good Texas name, which is a joke since I don't come from Texas.

So how did I get that name?

As my mother recalls it, I was named after the main character Clement (Clym) Yeobright in the Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) novel "Return of the Native".

As my father recalls it, I was named after Clement Richard Attlee (1883-1967), British Prime Minister (1945-1951).

Other people/characters/things with Clem in their name:

Historical Personages

Fictional Characters


I'll add to this list as I encounter other Clems.
