Claudia is the only girl's name that I truly love. There are others I like, but none as much as Claudia. HOWEVER, it means 'lame' in Latin. I'd like to know how many of you would be put off by this. If anyone named their DD Claudia and they're now at an age where they hate the meaning. Would love your opinions.

Perhaps I've studied too much Latin, but I can't see past the claudus = crippled association when I hear Claudia or Claudio. So I'm afraid it would put me off. Most names don't have any meanings, but some, like Claudia, are directly derived from a latin word.

There are so many names to choose from that I personally would choose another, but if you love Claudia despite the meaning, then I think you should use it.
