Taxonomic citation:
Citrus × clementina Tanaka, Citrologia 55. 1961.
The name apparently honors Père Marie-Clément Rodier (also: Vital Rodier; 1839–1904), French missionary in Algeria, credited with finding or creating this hybrid in 1902.  See:
English Wikipedia article on Clément Rodier
* The name “clementine” was used (in English at least) by gardeners, commercial growers, & grocers for decades before Tanaka formally proposed the scientific name.

Ich selbst habe die deutsche Schreibeweise mit k noch nicht bewusst wahrgenommen.
Bei Google-News finde ich deutlich weniger Treffer bei der k-Schreibung
als bei der Variante mit c. Ich würde deshalb hinter Klementine ein selten auch setzen.
