This is my name and I love it! So does everyone else, they love how unique it is. I pronounce it “clo-tilda”. My nicknames are Clo, Clottie, Clothilde & CoCo! Plus many many more. I’ve always embraced my name, I’m so lucky to have this amazing name!!

This is the name of a slave ship.

Impwood Says:


While I think this name is lovely, the meaning is a bit too militant for me. You can twist it around to meaning "brave" or "determined" or other such good qualities, but essentially Clotilda does just mean "battle fame".

Maybe if the bit you like best is the ending then just call her Tilda (like Tilda Swinton). Very cute. I'm not keen on the Clot beginning, and even if the pronunciation is "Clowht" you are still going to get people making mistakes

TheHumanCanvas Says:


What about a British kid?

lynn_wentworth Says:


I don't think I could get over the "clot" beginning either, try Matilda instead.

nike8004 Says:


I may be wrong but I think it is pronounced in Central Europe along the lines of "Clowht" (rhymes with coat), if that helps? I love the "tilda" at the end so much I'm willing to forsake the beginning!

CocoWhite Says:


That first "clot" syllable sounds very unappealing to me.
