Claude is a wonderful masculine name. Strong and attractive. I've never known an unpleasant Claude.

This name just doesn't seem to fit a girl to me.

This is one of the very few names that I like that suits both males and females. Such an awesome name.

To me, this name has always been masculine, and it sounds utterly masculine. The name Claudia should be used for girls, not this. And this name sounds really pretentious and snobby in English-speaking countries. It should be left to French usage.

Very cool name for a man. I like it a lot!

This is such a strong, masculine name. Whoever would use this as a feminine name is out of their mind! If you want a feminine name, try Claudia or Claudine. Leave boys' names and boys' names.

Claude is both a male and a female name in French. It isn't a modern appropriation, it's legitimately used for both genders.
I like this as a middle name or second first name, but not really as a first. It's just not very attractive. It reminds me of horses and claws.

The name Claude is considerably dated in France. It became wildly popular in the 1930's, but by the 70's it was very uncommon for baby boys. It ranked #1, 490 in 2010.

I absolutely love this name. It is classic and strong but not too pretentious. I prefer it for a male.

I was named Claude in 1966 because my mother was a fan of Claude François, famous pop singer in France in 60s and 70s (Sinatra adapted one of his hits as "My way"). It was already declining and rare and I knew few people having the same.
