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.

Personal experiences with the name Maud: | Edit

I'm from the netherlands and my name is Maud. People from other countries (like canada, france and italy) have had trouble pronouncig my name so I had to give them my second name or just say Matilda or "M"
