I voted for [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f], but all your choice are lovely! My second favorite would be [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f].

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]

Oh, I love [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]! And the meaning. [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] would loosely mean “brave, merciful warrior”

I voted Matildan [name_f]Claire[/name_f], I think it’s darling, but I also like [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] was the most striking to me. I prefer shorter middle names with long firsts and long middles for short first names :slight_smile:
Suggestions:
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Juno[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Eve[/name_f]

I agree Escape, especially with our two-syllable last name, a one-syllable middle will offer the best flow. The longer middles I like because it capitalizes on [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]'s royal history.

I voted [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] but I like [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Faye[/name_f] just as much, they have a different but equally great feel.

My favorites from your combos are [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] (what I voted for), and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]. I would like to add [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u].

Got to be [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]. It’s a little different but classy and pretty too.

Also just out of interest what would you nn [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]?

My favorite nickname for [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] is [name_f]Maude[/name_f]/[name_f]Maudie[/name_f], but [name_f]Millie[/name_f] and [name_f]Tillie[/name_f] are tied for a close second.

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] got my vote, but they’re all nice. :slight_smile:

[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Millie[/name_f]. Works great!

I like the shorter [name_f]Claire[/name_f] with [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]

Thank you everyone!!

Looks like [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is the clear winner

I love the name [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] it is number one for a baby girl on my list I love it! It’s my great grandmas name.a nd I’ve chosen the middle [name_f]Claire[/name_f] also. I love how it flows and it’s also my sisters name which is also a nice touch. Good name choice!!

You, too!!

My DH has final say because I am incapable of making a decision, but [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is my top choice now :slight_smile:

I voted for [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] but [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] was a very close second! [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] eked out [name_f]Claire[/name_f] because I find it more…unexpected… than [name_f]Claire[/name_f]. Both are lovely though!
