Hildegarde??? Have I gone crazy?
I have a crush on the name Hildegarde. However, Nameberry defines it as "Unfortunate name that evokes a caricature of heavy, plodding, Teutonic stodginess." That doesn't sound good, but I still love the name. What do you think? Would it be acceptable in the real world? If I gave that name to a daughter (no, I'm not having a child, just a what if). I think that Hildegarde Mabel/Hildegarde Maeve would be beautiful. Have I really gone crazy? :P
