"My name is Claudia. I love my name because I dont know anybody else with the name- it?s uncommon and unique. It appearantly means ?lame? or ?disabled? but it?s fun to joke about with my friends. I love my name :) I highly recommend it." May. 9, 2020:
"My name is Claudia, after my father Claude. I was born in 1948, when Claudia was more popular than it is now. Still, I didn't meet another Claudia til I was 5. I like having an uncommon name. Many years ago in Italy people used the Latin pronunciation Cloudia, and friends who were with me then still do still do. I like that. My sister and my best friends call me Claude, which I love."

"My name is Claudia. And I'm not lame if you think every Claudia in this world are lame then you're wrong. And truth be told, Pontius Pilatus' wife named Claudia. And she was telling him not to give him to people and the emperors and just let him go. Isn't it good? People does call me Clau (like CLAW) even sometimes people call me CLAW and RAWR -_- I'm okay with it. People says I'm strong and mature in my age. It's freaking fine to be Claudia. I'm sure about it :3" Jul. 20, 2011:
"I like my name because my dad picked it out for me. My mom says it means STRONG but I'm not sure. I am a strong women and I think my name fits me perfect. I am Mexican American but I have met a lot of women of different nationalities that are named Claudia." Jun. 6, 2011:
"The actual meaning of the name Claudia "lame" is incorrect. The name is so ancient, it's true meaning is lost in antiquity. Being named such a unique name has shaped my essence. I am a free thinker, a leader, think outside the box, am truly unique, exotic and Aquarius to boot. :)" Jan. 12, 2011:
"We love this name, the neighbors down the street have a little girl about 12 named Claudia. It's fits her perfect,we had this on our name list with both our daughters,but never used it." Dec. 12, 2010:
"i adore my name because im the only one in my whole school called it, my friends say it's unusual and artistic (which i totally am :D) i get annoyed when people mispronounce my name saying CLOWDIA instead of CLAWDIA and im all like " IT'S PRONOUNCED CLAWDIA DAMMIT HOW ABOUT I JUST CLAW UR FACE OFF!. i actually don't mind the meaning it never really comes up but if someone does ask i tell them it means to be in pain and their like "O.O.......wow that's kinda emo". well an artist has to suffer for their art lol. my family and friends nickname me claudie, claudez and dee dee

"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:
"My name is Claudia and people alway tell me what a pretty name I have. It is very unique and I do like the nicknames that come with it, though I prefer to be called Claudia. Nicknames are Dirt Claude, Claudhopper, Cla-la-la (a 3 year old couldn't pronounce it). I was named after my mom's best friend." Jan. 26, 2010:
"My names Claudia and I love it. I don't know anyone else who has it and every one loves it. My teacher says it like the French pronounce it!!! my parents got the name from a girl they knew whos name was Claude" Sep. 30, 2009:
"My name is Claudia and I luv it!!!
My guy friend calls me Cladeda (pronounced Clawdeeda)
Everyone can make sooo many cool new nick names from my awesome name.
And it's unique. Nobody else in my school is named Claudia!" Apr. 8, 2008:
"Who cares what the meaning of claudia is. A meaning behind a name doesnt make a person, if u no what i mean. My name is Claudia i am 14 and very glad my parents chose this name for me. Plus i also read that Claudia means dazzling!" Mar. 3, 2007:
"We put a twist when spelling our daughter Klaudya's name. She was named after her Grandfather but we wanted it to be more girly. This name is beautiful & strong it fits my daughter very well and she is not lame." Feb. 6, 2007:
"My name is Claudia. I like it because friends call me Claude, Claudi, Claudette. Yet, my significant other can still call me Claudia, which sounds nice. And don't forget about Claudia Shiffer- She's one hot Claude!" Dec. 8, 2006:
"Claudia is international (can be Spanish, Italian, German, etc.) and timeless (impervious to trends). And dignified - it may seem like a bit much for a baby, but your daughter will thank you when she doesn't have to write "Kayla" all over her doctoral dissertation." Nov. 8, 2006:
"I think its OK. It means lame tho, that is a downside. My name is Claudia" Oct. 13, 2006:
"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:
"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:

"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:
"I was named after my Uncle Claude in 1950. My mom always told me it meant "dazzling".... I didn't find out any different till I was about 20. 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? I truly prefer dazzling to lame....lol." Jun. 28, 2018:
"My granddaughter is named Claudia. No one else has that name at her school. We pronounce her name cloud eeah. Her nickname is Cloud. She is very mature for an 8 yr old and very strong willed. Going to be a strong woman." Apr. 28, 2018:
"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!)" Dec. 12, 2017:
"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
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:
