    I would prefer Maud as a nickname for Matilda...I think Maudie would be a super cute nickname for either Matilda or Maud, though. Overall I like the name, but probably wouldn't want to use it myself.

    Maud/Maude is a gorgeous name. However, the English accent is such a buzzkill. The French (and Danish) pronunciation is absolutely eloquent. To me, Daphne is the meh-name. Couldn't care less for it.

    Hmmm - maybe that's what is - in the English accent it makes it sound like a fungus!

    Yes, Maud is an acquired taste probably due to the sound of it. It sounds like a "downer" name - clunky, abrupt, harsh and crusty - so I don't know why I love it! I think my love comes from the 70's TV show "Maude" starring Bea Arthur. I used to watch that strong, courageous, sassy and opinionated character of Maude with my family so the name only holds happy memories for me.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Maude with the e is more my style. It somehow softens it just a bit. I love it, but I do gravitate towards some wacky old lady style names! I think Maude is going to be the "new vintage" soon enough, it sounds a bit tougher & stronger than the floral/lilting vintage names that are popular now. I think vintage lovers looking for something unique will pick things like Maude, Edna, Wilhelmina & Geraldine over Violet, Ella, Willa & Josephine soon enough!
