"I love my name. Maud is a great name but I don't wish it to be more popular. :)" Mar. 20, 2020:
"I had an Aunt Maude and she was a pretty nice lady-she carried the name well. I went to school in the 1960s with a girl named Maudie. Within the last 40 years, everyone either thinks of Maude Findlay, Bea Arthur's legendary TV character, Maud Adams, who was in the James Bond film "Octopussy or Maude Flanders, the ill-fated neighbor on "The Simpsons"...three entirely different types of women. They proved it was an OK name. The Brits seem to be bringing this name back for the 21st century as they have all the other names like Beatrice, Hazel, Ruth, Ethel, etc." Jul. 13, 2010:
