You could also add the usage "Ancient Roman (Hellenized)" to this name, because the ancient Greeks translated the name Claudia into their language as Κλαυδία, which transcribed into English is Klaudia.

The modern Greek spelling for the name is exactly the same, by the way - but due to e.g. phonetical changes in the Greek language (and therefore also its alphabet) over time, the (English) transcription for the name is a bit different. In modern Greek, the name is Klavdia.

So, in summary: ancient Greek Κλαυδία (Klaudia) eventually became Κλαύδια (Klavdia) in modern Greek.
