Hi smile looking for opinions on the name Mattie for a girl, possibly Matilda on BC.

I think Mattie is a very cute shortening of Matilda.

Reminds me of Cranford!

I love it. My dd has a friend with that name and she's lovely so it has very good connotations for me!

Lovely as a NN

Very cute as a nickname. Matilda is one of my favourite names of all time.

I know a 7 year old Mattina who goes by Mattie sometimes

Love, love, love. I really wanted to use Matilda with the nn of Mattie.

Love it as a short name of Matilda.

All the Matildas I know are shortened to Tilly.

Mattie is way cuter!

Yay! Thank you smile

I don't like it, it sounds too masculine, I prefer Tilda.

detectiv Sat 09-Jul-16 18:53:15

I don't like the sound of it - prefer Tilda

I really like it! Lovely name.

My nan was Martha, but known as Mat or Mattie

BennyTheBall Sat 09-Jul-16 18:55:54

Love it (loathe Tilda).

It's actually an old-fashioned abbreviation. I think one of the girls in The Crown of Success by A.L.O.E. (A Lady Of England) was called Matty.

stabbybitch Sat 09-Jul-16 18:56:55

I absolutely love it. I don't think it needs a longer full name either.

Matilda is a great name - shortened to tilly or mally. I don't like mattie as it's a surname.

Salzundessig Sat 09-Jul-16 18:57:42

My daughter is a Matilda and I like the nn mattie. I also like (and use) Tilda. My dh uses Tilly Vanilli grin
