what do you think? too dull or could it be cute?

PaperBank Mon 11-Jul-11 22:18:28

Not keen personally, but it's a perfectly good name and I wouldn't say it's dull.

Zwitterion Mon 11-Jul-11 23:05:12

Love Claudia. And Claude for that matter.

EskimoPie Mon 11-Jul-11 23:13:22

Love it. Also love Claudine, for some reason: have never known one though.

LynetteScavo Mon 11-Jul-11 23:14:56

Was very nearly DD's name, but the meaning put me off.

Tobermory Mon 11-Jul-11 23:23:36

Exactly what lynetteScavo said.
My DD2 was very nearly a claudia too.

I like it and know two lovely Claudia's. Not keen on Claude though.

EveryonesJealousOfWeasleys Tue 12-Jul-11 07:24:57

I know a lovely one but she is half German and it is pronounced as Cloudia, nn Cloudy which I really like

My SIL is called Claudine, which I think is nicer than Claudia. Her name is occasionally shortened to Dina.

Rhubarbgarden Tue 12-Jul-11 07:30:08

I like it.

pommedechocolat Tue 12-Jul-11 08:50:04

Like it very much. A friend has a Claudia otherwise I would consider it.

Hedwig3 Tue 12-Jul-11 09:23:45

Really like it.

LetThereBeRock Tue 12-Jul-11 10:29:49

Claudia's beautiful,and not at all dull.

hellsbells4 Tue 12-Jul-11 10:36:03

I like it - and also claudette.

sonniebonnie Tue 12-Jul-11 10:40:55

The meaning would put me off (Latin for lame/disabled).

Sinople Tue 12-Jul-11 10:44:01

Nice name, unfortunate meaning :-/

evamummy Tue 12-Jul-11 10:48:23

Anyone who's ever studied latin will probably find it hard not to think of disabled/lame when hearing Claudia or Claudio. Shame as the name has a nice sound otherwise.

brodanbell Tue 12-Jul-11 13:31:59

one of my favourites and I will use it for a girl. I'm ignoring the meaning!

hulabula Tue 12-Jul-11 14:39:16

I like it pronounced the German way (Clowd-eea). But I think the meaning would put me off, unfortunately.

IvyAndGold Tue 12-Jul-11 14:53:20

i like it! what's the meaning of it though? is it really so bad it'd put you off it...?

hulabula Tue 12-Jul-11 15:18:39

The Latin adjective Claudus means disabled/crippled, so not a very nice association unfortunately.

BertieBasset Tue 12-Jul-11 19:48:17

I have one! Everyone loves it - although she is tiny and I am still hormonal so they would be mad to tell me they didn't smile

I don't know any others either.

bagelmonkey Tue 12-Jul-11 21:28:50

Do people really care about the meaning of names? I have no idea what my name means. Maybe I should get one of those crappy bookmarks they sell on all the gift shops with different names on.

pommedechocolat Tue 12-Jul-11 22:44:52

The Italians use claudio as a name a lot though so I think it would be silly to dismiss it on the Latin basis.
