Name: clemence Origin: Latin,,, French,, Meaning (no case): mild, merciful



The name Clemence is a common female French name (male form Clement), and the name has its roots in Latin languages. In Latin, the name Clemence meant mild or merciful, and in modern French the accepted meaning of the name Clemence is also related to mercy, being clemency. Interestingly, the Roman Goddess Clemence was the goddess of pity. The name Clemency now refers to the act of an official pardon in justice; clemency is considered a juridical term. The name Clemence remains popular in French-speaking Europe (see below) although it has never become popular in the US.


While Clemence does not make the list of the 1000 most popular female given names in the US, it is wildly popular in parts of Europe where French is the native language. The name Clemence was rated 29th in France in 2001 and it ranked 88th most popular female given name in Belgium in 2002. The name is perhaps more common in French than in English because it holds a meaning that parents like to bestow on baby girls, much like the names Katherine and Marie are so popular in English. [1]


The name Clemence celebrates its name day in France on May 21st of each year.


  • There is a town in Luxembourg named Clemence: called Clemency in English, the town is a tiny one, reported to have slightly more than 1800 inhabitants. The town is near the Belgian border and is perhaps going to be expanding because of its proximity to a major highway. Historically an agricultural town, the town is increasing in size as people take up residence there and commute to other cities and towns each day to work. [1]
