Just wondering what people think of this name?

If the meaning doesn't bother you and you don't think it will bother your daughter, then ignore my comments smile.

The "meaning" didn't bother me either...I guess it might put some people off, but that just means fewer baby Claudias out there, which is all good...

The latin meaning wouldn't bother me. I don't think most people would even consider it. I really like the name, feminine and not too unusual but not ubiquitous either.

Given how many gorgeous names there are to choose from, I personally wouldn't choose one that is derived from the latin for 'disabled'/'lame'.

Another one's who's biased because I have a one year old Claudia!

It's a name I absolutely adore - as others have said, it's strong but elegant, feminine without being frilly. It's also one of those names that everyone knows, but it isn't common IYSWIM - or at least I haven't encountered any others in our neck of the woods.

Haven't for a second regretted choosing it, or come across another name I like as much!

Lovely name

Gorgeous name, if go for it.

For me, I think of The Babysitter's Club and it makes me smile a lot. I always wanted to be Claudia or Stacey!

Another vote for Claudia. We are keen on our history and the classics and when they are born in August our twins will be Alexander Michael and Claudia Jean smile

I have a one year old Claudia. We call her Claudie at the moment. I'm really pleased we called her this - everyone can spell it but there aren't loads (yet). She refers to herself as Clau Clau.

Love it

my dd is a bit of a history buff & loves the association with Claudius.

And on every thread where someone pipes up its latin meaning, I always say that it's not even proven. It's a kind of myth about a myth.

IsThisAGoodIdea Thu 13-Jun-13 21:48:36

Love it, wondered how many posts in it would be before someone piped up its Latin meaning. Who cares?

Ahh mumbaisapphire enjoy! The gorgeous Claudia I know is aged 10. She has made me biased in a good way about the name.

mumbaisapphire Thu 13-Jun-13 20:53:41

I've got a 5 week old Claudia so I'm biased. I think it's a gorgeous name and suits a baby, young girl and woman. Go for it.

I like it but it doesn't matter how you want people to pronounce it-I think mostly it will just be dependent on their accent or experience. In my Norn iron accent it would be 'Clod-ia'

BreasticlesNTesticles Thu 13-Jun-13 18:56:08

DD2 is Claudia (aged 2) and she goes by Claudi and Coco

TotallyEggFlipped Thu 13-Jun-13 18:55:07

Nice name. Also like Claudine.

LineRunner Thu 13-Jun-13 18:53:38

I think it's beautiful and 'Claudie' is a lovely nn for a baby.

CruCru Thu 13-Jun-13 18:51:53

Think it's my favourite girls name. Shame DH doesn't like it.

Love it. Would be on my list if when we have the next one!

wigglesrock Thu 13-Jun-13 18:30:50

I think it's beautiful, absolutely gorgeous. The meaning wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

Bowlersarm Thu 13-Jun-13 18:30:42

I like it. I actually think it suits all ages.
