Just wondering what people think of this name?

agirlcalledsandoz Thu 13-Jun-13 14:36:35

I love it ! Also not over used

GingerCurry Thu 13-Jun-13 15:32:46

I don't like it sorry. Cant imagine a baby Claudia
Sounds like quite a cold name to me.

CoffeeandNumbers Thu 13-Jun-13 15:34:40

Love it! Feminine but strong. Good choice.

MisselthwaiteManor Thu 13-Jun-13 15:36:26

I like it

SauceForTheGander Thu 13-Jun-13 15:38:08

Love it. Agree it sounds grown up but so what.

My eldest dd (12yo) is Claudia & I still love it smile We wanted something totally non cutesy - when she was little she was often Claudie now she's just Claudia. There is one other Claudia (a couple of years older) in her school & one in my dd2's nursery class.

Personally I love it. But then I'm biased very strongly to this name as its very special to me. X

Love it. Wanted it but DH wasn't so keen. Don't know any children with this name ATM

Mockingcurl Thu 13-Jun-13 15:57:13

I know a 19 year old Claudia. She is known as Cloud to her friends. I think it's a lovely name.

ImaginaryHat Thu 13-Jun-13 16:25:16

I love it, beautiful and classic but not frilly.

Maybe I've studied too much Latin but I cannot get past the 'disabled/lame' meaning of the name. But perhaps that doesn't bother you.

squoosh Thu 13-Jun-13 16:37:32

Love it.

HesterShaw Thu 13-Jun-13 16:41:00

Are you thinking the English "Clordia" or German "Cloudia" pronunciation?

Elquota Thu 13-Jun-13 16:44:05

Not keen, sorry. It's a bit hard sounding.

Reastie Thu 13-Jun-13 16:47:20

I really like it.

LedaOfSparta Thu 13-Jun-13 16:52:47

Love it but DH wouldn't let me use it for DD

Tangfasticlady Thu 13-Jun-13 17:04:18

My 14yo dd is named Claudia, I love her name and think it really suits her, however she isn't as keen.

burberryqueen Thu 13-Jun-13 17:07:35

I really like it but only when it is pron. 'cloudier' not 'clawdia' - something to do with word association perhaps....

AuntieBrenda Thu 13-Jun-13 17:08:08

That was on my list! I had a DS though so I've banked it for next time

farmersdaughter Thu 13-Jun-13 17:09:58

It's my current favourite girls name for DC2. It's strong, yet feminine everyone's heard of it yet is not overly used.

TolliverGroat Thu 13-Jun-13 17:12:53

I know a baby Claudia. It's nice.

Cassieyellow Thu 13-Jun-13 18:28:48

Hi glad you have asked as this is one of our top choices too. I am concerned about the 'lame' meaning. Plus the two pronunciation s. I asked a teenage girl i know called Claudia and she said she does get annoyed by that... Lovely name isn't it. What to do..!

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

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

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

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