Claudius is the name of Hamlet's incestuous and murderous uncle in the Shakespearean play. Claudius poured poison into his brother the king's ear, thus killing him. In his grief he managed to wed Hamlet's mother and his deceased brother's wife, Queen Gertrude.

Great sounding name, impressive due to its long usage and association with Roman Emperors, but I wouldn't name my child "lame", I think, without some serious reviewing.

Lame? Crippled? wow.

The name of a saint, and it means "lame, crippled". Weak name.
