Rindercella Mon 31-Aug-09 16:32:10

Don't beat around the bush will you Custardo grin

Personally, I don't like it.

reikizen Mon 31-Aug-09 16:33:10

Oh god no.

Prefer Clothilde

Blood clot.

Tilda is nice though

Fruitysunshine Mon 31-Aug-09 16:36:06

Sounds like some kind of medicine - clomid? What's that then?

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Mon 31-Aug-09 16:36:50

There are some windup threads around today, clearly.

I hope this is one of them!

Was not a wind up, just an interesting discovery, I rather like it's proximity to clotted cream myself - like a lovely milkmaid, not going to use it, though.

Mumcentreplus Mon 31-Aug-09 16:47:34

sounds like a STD..grin

Nancy66 Mon 31-Aug-09 16:48:27

sounds like you couldn't decide between Chloe and Matilda and thought 'oh well we'll have half and half'

TheCrackFox Mon 31-Aug-09 16:51:35

Everyone at school will shorten it to "Clot".

This had to be the worst names ever suggested on Mumsnet.

purepurple Mon 31-Aug-09 16:52:05

sounds like a brand of dishcloth

BoysAreLikeDogs Mon 31-Aug-09 16:52:59

It's a French name not a cut-n-shut name grin

violethill Mon 31-Aug-09 17:18:54

If you do go for it, at least spell it correctly as someone else suggested: Clothilde.

But she will just be known as Clot which ever way you spell it.

colditz Mon 31-Aug-09 17:27:10

Sounds like a gynaecological disease.

scottishmummy Mon 31-Aug-09 17:31:50

imagine shouting "clotilda come in for your tea" .ghastly. waiting for the howls of derision

LadyHooHa Mon 31-Aug-09 17:32:53

Couldn't have put it better, Crackfox.

As others have alluded to, there are very good reasons why this name is not in common use in English.

BonsoirAnna Mon 31-Aug-09 17:49:21

There are other French names which really don't work in English. Fanny?

dogofpoints Mon 31-Aug-09 17:52:52

Laurence for a girl

scottishmummy Mon 31-Aug-09 18:04:14

dogofpoints what is the basic flaw?

Sorry but don't like it either!
