I think this name is awful, it looks nice and would be okay if pronounced the same as Mathilde, but I hate the pronunciation listed.

Matilde Urrutia (May 5, 1912 - January 5, 1985) was the third wife of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, from 1966 until his death in 1973. They met in Santiago in 1946. Urrutia was the inspiration behind Neruda's work 100 Love Sonnets which includes a beautiful dedication to her. Neruda withheld the publication for some years to spare the feelings of his previous wife.

After Neruda's death, Urrutia edited for publication his memoir, Confieso que he vivido ("I confess to have lived"). This and other activities brought her into conflict with the government of Augusto Pinochet which tried to suppress the memory of Neruda, an outspoken communist, from the collective consciousness.

Her own memoir, My Life with Pablo Neruda, ISBN 0-8047-5009-2, was published posthumously in 1986.

(not in a Spanish-spoken way) In the movie Zoolander, the main actress's character's name is Matilda. At some point in the movie, Derek says, "Matilde. Do you mind if I call you Matilde?" That's how I will always reference it.

Matilde is also an Italian name. It was relatively common in the 19th century. In the 20th century it was not much used and usually regarded as an ugly, obsolete name. Today it has become popular again, at least in Northern Italy (it ranks 8th of the most popular names in Bologna in 2004, 9th in Venice, 16th in Milan; 27th in all Italy in 2006). [noted -ed]
