Maud sounds a lot like mud. Not a pretty name to say the least.

I honestly thought it was a guy's name before... it's not very pretty.

Maud is also used in France. Here it's probably more common among young women than old women. (The spelling Maude is used in France too.) [noted -ed]

Maud is youthful and charming in my opinion.
This name is short and fresh with a lovely Medieval and aristocratic vibe.

I'm Maud and I act just like my name... it's sweet and cool and hey, it's not common like other names... my name is rare and I just love it.

I adore the name Maud! It's so cute and vintage! I love granny chic names! :D.

Maud is my name and I love this name. I wouldn't have wanted another one. My father chose it because he had seen a French movie entitled "Ma nuit chez Maud" 1969. I have never seen it but I know that it is about an independent woman and that's what I am. The meaning of this name is also very close to my personality.

In my opinion, Maud is THE cutest name out there. I have no clue why I adore this name so much, but it's one of my favourite names ever. I picture a kitten, and kittens just generally make things awesome.

Maud seems like the kind of name for a spunky, out-spoken girl. It's tough but sweet.

I had a great-grandmother named Maud Mary. I'm not crazy about Maud on it's own, but I like how those two go together.

I love this name and agree that it is definitely a guilty pleasure. Everyone I've told so far have either laughed or said 'WTF?'

It reminds me of old, Hollywood glamour. It's nice, but kind of a guilty pleasure for me.

In the legend of the Mordiford wyvern, Maud is a little girl who raises a wyvern as a pet. When the wyvern reaches adulthood, he begins to terrorize the village of Mordiford--Maud is the only person safe from him. Eventually he is slayed, which left Maud heartbroken.

How charming! Maud is classically feminine and darling. A wonderful alternative to the horrid 'Madison' for a girl born today.

I think it's gorgeous! It looks pretty, sounds pretty, and seems so modern and cool!

Very old and boring.
Hushpuppy  10/23/2008
It just sounds like a name for an old woman at this stage, very old-fashioned, and not very pretty. The sound of it with the long 'o' sound just isn't very pleasant.

Maud Hart Lovelace was the author of the Betsy-Tacy series of books set in turn-of-the-century Mankato, MN. I personally prefer the spelling Maude.

If anyone is called Maud, apparently I am your female "son".

I like it a lot. There was a Queen/Empress of England named Maud, or Mathilda. Some call her Maud and some Mathilda.
Maud was also the queen of Norway from 1905. She was something like the granddaughter or great granddaughter of Queen Victoria of England. ;)

It sort of has a Maudlin ring to it.
