Gender: F Meaning of Wilda: "to strive," Origin of Wilda: German

Wilda (or Wylda) has two widely divergent images. Pronounced will-da, it feels like a cousin of Hilda: a sturdy and none-too-attractive prairie settler. But you can also think of her as wild-ah, as in the feminine of wild and wilder.
