Matilda?

I was wondering what everyone’s opinions on [name]Matilda[/name] was. I think it’s lovely, and I’m actually starting to favor it a lot more than I used to - I would use the nicknames [name]Tillie[/name] or [name]Millie[/name] if I used a nn. Maybe [name]Tilda[/name].

What about combos? Thus far I’ve only been able to come up with [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Fern[/name].

I also really like Mechtild/e and [name]Mathilde[/name].

So, thoughts? Combos?

Thank you!

Oh, I love [name]Matilda[/name] and there are great nicknames to go with this name: [name]Tilda[/name] is my fav. [name]Matilda[/name] is a three-syllable name so I think one or two syllable middle names work best with it. Here are some suggestions for middle names.
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Wren[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Jane[/name]]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Faith[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Gray[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Doone[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Faye[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Jade[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Lane[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]

I adore the name [name]Matilda[/name]! I think all 3 nicknames are adorable, too.
My friend named her daughter [name]Matilda[/name]. To be honest, the first time I heard it, I was a little indifferent. I have come to [name]LOVE[/name] the name…so much so that it will be on the short list if we ever have another girl.

I do agree that a one syllable middle name would sound best, unless your last name is also one syllable. I love [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Fern[/name]! The other above suggestions are great, too. I personally think you should stick with the “[name]Matilda[/name]” spelling.

I adore the name [name]Mathilde[/name], and [name]Matilda[/name] has definitely grown on me of late.

I think [name]Tillie[/name]/[name]Tilly[/name] is a very sweet nickname for a little girl, and as she grows up, [name]Tilda[/name] is a great option, a la [name]Tilda[/name] Swinton, the wonderful actress.

As for combos, here are a few ideas:

[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Plum[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Verity[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Kate[/name]

I also really like [name]Mischa[/name]'s suggestions of [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Matilda[/name] [name]June[/name].

Thanks!
