  • "My name is Claudia, to be specific, Claudia-Rose. I was named after my paternal grandfather Claude. I love my name so much and I am glad to grow old in it. It's a popular name at my high school so sometimes I hate it :) It means Lame and Crippled and i get teased about it every so often. Best idea is just tell no one the meaning, then that gives space for the most awesome nicknames. I have MANY. Clauds, Claudies, Lauds, Tauds, Santa Clauds around Xmas time :)" Feb. 28, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "i have i friend called claudia and everyone calls her claudz i think it is a lovely name and any child would be lucky to have this name !!! by annonaymus" Jun. 26, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Claudia. We named her Claudia because I once had a teacher I really liked by that name. We think it's a really beautiful name. It flows nicely off the tongue and it feels classic, elegant, and feminine. The only drawback is its meaning. Every child wants his or her name to mean something nice like "beauty" or "happiness" or "wisdom" or something. Claudia means "lame." I have yet to explain this to my seven year old. From time to time she asks me, "What does my name mean?" So far I've managed to skirt the issue, but I know that the time of reckoning is not too far in the future. Luckily we know two other Claudias. One is a much-loved grown-up, the other is another little girl. So hopefully she will be able to commiserate with them and look past the Latin meaning of her name." Jun. 11, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Claudia and I have had a hard time getting to like it. But recently I have been getting used to it. Meaning I actually think I?m starting to grow into it because it is very unique and it suites my personality. A few people pronounce it ?Clowdia? but I just correct them and move on. I have only met one person with the same name as me and that was the person I was named after. She was a great woman. But anyways. I?m starting to really like it. Despite the meaning" Jan. 6, 2019: Report as inappropriate

Although one time I was in a gift shop and saw a rack with names on it, and it said Claudia "dazzling" under it. So I'm trying to find out where the dazzling came from and why?

  • "What makes me upset is that my name is 'Claudia' except it's spelt like 'Klaudija' and that whenever I type in my name into google it autocorrects and says "Is this the correct spelling?" and comes up with Claudia. I think peope who are called Klaudija need respect too, if there is anyone called Klaudija, spelt that way then tell me, if you don't mind. It also bugs me since people in my school spell Klaudija but without a 'J' and replaced with a 'C'. Btw, I'm from Lithuania (aka the country with the world's hardest language EVER!)"

  • "My name is Claudia. My father's name was Claude. He gave me the name so I'd be named after him. I love my name, they were no one all through school that had a name like mine. It's a rare name. I feel I have a part of my father with me. He passed on several years ago. On The back of his double heart tombstone, it reads parent's of: Claudia John Glenn Glenn was the first born, john the second, and me i was the last. So you see I changed this around, so everyone In the world would see my name. And know I was named after my father! Very proud of my name..." Feb. 16, 2014: Report as inappropriate
