Just heard of a new baby called this and I think it's lovely, but I haven't heard it being used in so long.
Wondering what other posters think? Dated or classic?

Glad you've net a baby Judith. Every Judith I've met have been jolly nice. I've suggested it on other threads for those looking for the less 'flowery', stronger sort of girl's name. I like it.

duh, 'met' not 'net'.

I think The Walking Dead. Zombie bait!

Classic. Jude/Judy cool NNs too.

While I like Judith - I guess it will often be shorted to Judy which always conjures up the image of Punch and Judy for me. Shame as Judith is a lovely name.

Judith is lovely. I like Jude too but the possibility of Judy as a nickname puts me off. Like Julie for Juliet put me off using that. If only you could guarantee people would use the full version!

No I don't like the name Judith.

Although she'd manage the pickles and chutneys stall at the village fete without breaking a sweat and would be fantastic in a crisis. Good thick ankles too.

Judith is a lovely, strong name. I have a name that is often abbreviated. I like some of the abbrevations on other people, but not on me, so I've dealt with this by refusing to answer to anything other than my full name. Not that hard, actually.

I love it, and you never hear it. I think it's a classic that belongs in the same category as Miriam.

I like Judith and Jude, I've never heard anyone shorten Juliet to Julie - Jules maybe but not Julie - that seems to be more a name on it's own rather than a nn.

Very nice.

marshmallowpies Tue 06-Jan-15 18:18:06

I like it, but sadly it's the name of a member of the family who is estranged (her choice). So it's a sad name to me hmm

bluebelle2662 Tue 06-Jan-15 18:48:20

I think it's truly hideous, I had to say. Sorry!

I have known a lovely Judith all my life, and met a few others too, but it is not a name I haver ever warmed too.

I quite like it, but I wouldn't use it because it means "Jewish girl" and I'm not Jewish, so I'm not sure if that would be disrespectful.

SwedishEdith Wed 07-Jan-15 20:51:14

The only Judiths I know are definitely Judith, never Jude. Don't like it at all.

Marcipex Thu 08-Jan-15 10:37:05

Sorry but I'm with bluebelle

CrispyFern Thu 08-Jan-15 11:21:35

Makes me think of zombies too.

AllMimsyWereTheBorogoves Thu 08-Jan-15 12:50:32

Here's a brilliant Judith to be a role model.

MargeryDaw Fri 09-Jan-15 19:25:15

Lovely, and I love Jude

KatieKaye Fri 09-Jan-15 19:29:35

Lovely name.
Very strong and classic.
Knew a fabulous Judy (super smiley and kind) and a very, very nasty Jude, so guess which shortening I prefer?!
plus Hey Jude is such a boring dirge of a song

Cupcakes123 Fri 09-Jan-15 19:31:10

Another one for zombie bait here!

ShadowSuperNova Fri 09-Jan-15 20:05:00

I quite like it.

I don't think I've come across any under the age of 60. Maybe it's due a revival?

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Fri 09-Jan-15 20:18:40

It's a bit goody-goody. You're not going to get a rock'n'roll Judith, are you? More a Sunday School teacher.
