- Comments and insights on the name Maud: | Edit
My name is Maud. I’m 16 and live in the netherlands. In my country the name is very popular so therefor, a little boring. In a lot of other countries the name is unusual and so I think Maud is a great name if you don’t live in the netherlands! Also make sure to think of a nickname before you choose. Call her “M” or “Maudie”.. nobody gave me a nickname and i’d like to have one.
