Claudia Debatei do not ignore the Rich Text toolbar provided me. i bold, italicize, enlarge, underline and CAPITALIZE for emphasis, individuality, and to capture attention among the endless Arial Standard Size Font that everyone else uses.
i am not screaming nor will i cosset you. i do this to highlight the most important aspect of my thoughts so they are not lost again in the never ending sea of tiny, black, tempered letters that make up forums everywhere.
~*~ i encourage you to do the same ~*~

I think it's pretty unlikely that it's anything other than "lame." Every reliable source I know of connects the Claud- family of names with "lame." A name's meaning may not be good, but that doesn't mean it's not the "true meaning." Some names have crappy origins. People don't want the name they love to have an undesirable meaning, so they'll assign meanings that are unrelated but more complementary (case in point: Declan and "full of goodness." No one knows Declan's meaning. Ditto for Dashiell meaning "from heaven.")
In reality, Claudia is probably an apotropaic name, meaning that it's a name with an intentionally bad meaning. The bad meaning is an attempt to trick spirits from harming the child. (Short article here: Apotropaic Baby Names - Baby Names)
