I don't mind matilda being longer. We don't have a very long last name and long names don't really bug me either way 


My partner likes Penelope olive

We have an Izabella and she just goes by that but occasionally at school is known as izzy.

I would always use penelope but if someone called her penny, poppy, nell or Nellie I wouldn't mind  Hate Ellie though 


I also don't plan on nick naming her if she Ends up Matilda but if I did I like Tilly or Millie rather than Mattie, even Mimi I would prefer over mattie

I can stand the nick names tilly or Millie for matilda but I just dislike nick names in general so it's doubtful I'd ever call her that. My other kids are called by their full names by me. I like poppy, penny and Nellie for penelope. The pro with violet is there isn't much of a nick name

I think violet Evangeline is one of my favorite combinations but I'm not 100% sure if violet is "the name" compared to the others  I've had so much trouble picking this time

The only real issue I have with matilda still is Matty I hate that as a nick name

The popularity of violet and penelope bother me. If penelope were less popular it would probably be my pick.

I think I prefer matilda and Penelope but my bf leans towards violet. 

This is our last baby so I keep thinking of using penelope and matilda together but some people think it's too clunky and long together

Forgot to add Evangeline Aurora

One good think in my state is that its number 98 here so it's not as common as it is nationally

I was really attracted to the name with my second pregnancy which was five years ago. I had never met a Penelope and loved that it was quirky and uncommon but with each pregnancy since then I've watched it rise and it's bugged me. I worry it'll get even more popular and it's already number 42 :/  plus now I think some people are connecting it's rise to kiurtney kardashian naming her daughter that and I hate the kartrashians

I try not to dwell on the popularity but I had a popular name and I hate it. Matilda in the us is in the 600's and Penelope is 43 so it really makes me lean towards Matilda. But sound alone I would possibly lean towards Penelope I also like the nick names for Penelope a bit more than the ones for Matilda. 


hopefu you're right about Mattie not being intuitive I think Tilly makes more sense. Millie is maybe a bit of a stretch but I do like millie as a Nick name for Matilda

Penelope is number 43 so it's pretty popular in my eyes. i have no intention of ever calling her Mattie if we name her Matilda maybe Millie or Tilly occasionally but never Mattie and I'll correct people up until she's in school but at that point it's sort of out of my hands 

February 24, 2016 10:50 AM

We plan on not really calling her a nick name. I'm not a big nick name person but mainly I worry about others taking the liberty of calling her Mattie. I hate the name Mattie it reminds me of Maddy which makes me think Madison or madeline. Mattie just seems safe and too common. 



If I had to pick a nick name for her I would probably go with Millie, Tilda or tilly. I don't have any issues with those nick names. Even mimi could be cute

I am having an extremel difficult time choosing 

January 18, 2016 05:39 PM

This is going to be our last baby so I'm kind of leaning towards using both together but was worried they sounded clunky together 

April 27, 2013 10:29 AM

My first instinct with Matilda would be to call her Matilda or ask if she goes by anything as a nick name, if I were to assume a nick name I would assume Tilda or Tilly which I like Millie is also adorable. I personally really like Matilda and don't think it sounds elderly as some may say, but I am in my 20's and was always very fond of the movie and the book "Matilda" so i associate it with a youthful bearer as the character was a child. I wouldn't worry too much about Mattie being a nick name and maybe occasionaly use the nick names you like around her so she will be acustomed to being called other things like someone else said. Then if she is used to being matilda or tilly when someone says mattie she will say no it's matilda or tilly please.

True. I have yet to meet a Lucy, Evelyn, Caroline, or Henry and they are in the top one hundred. I guess I was worried about the rate in which Evangeline has rised In popularity. We try to find a lot of names 700-1000 because chances are we will never meet another one. If we do it wouldn't be many. I want her name to feel special so I like the idea of only know

April 13, 2013 01:31 PM

It has a really pretty vintage quality :) I really like evie for a nick name 

April 13, 2013 01:18 PM

I have a daughter who is six and a son who is one. I really don't know anyone with children in my area. My daughters classmates have mostly top 100 names I live in West Virginia. But I just don't want to use something expected I am still looking for a name that packs some wow lol that's the best I can describe what I want I want some pizazz and something unique But not weird if you know what I mean. I have never heard of Evangeline from lost. I heard the name in a movie called nanny McPhee actually lol
