Good thing it isn’t a Spanish name, then.

I like Goldgeve and Godgifu better, they look like real names, though they may be unfamiliar to some, but still a real name and Golda would be a great short name to go by.

I like Golda, it seems more accessible than the old Norse names Goldgifu or Goldgeve: both pronounced Gold-yee-va.It means Gold+Gift. Great names, but, Hence, why Golda seems more accessible.

Too close to 'gorda' which means fat in Spanish.

I met a Golda in her late 20s-early 30s the other day. She seemed like a lovely lady but I was utterly confused as I had no idea this was a name. (Aside from Goldie Hawn and I thought she had a one of a kind name but due to the popularity charts I guess I was wrong)
