Default name of this C chord

hey fellas,
while fingerpicking, i use a lot of chords that might not be musically coorect, but sound nice anyway, but i was wondering, is there a name for this chord?:
e 3
B 3
G 0
D 0
A 3
E x

its sort of a Cadd9 , but with a D note replacing the E note, is it tecnically still a C chord then?

CSus2, as the 3rd (E) is suspended for the 2(D). If you weren't muting the E on the bottom, that would add the 3rd back in and it would be a Cadd9.

I tried it on my guitar and feel that what you should have played was a C6/9 instead of what you played. Try a C6/9 at the 3rd fret and see if it fits what you are doing.

Then it's musically correct.

Anyway, your chord can either be Csus2 or Gsus4 depending on how you use it.
