Actually, the true meaning of this name is obscure. Some say that its origin must be sought in the Latin word "claudo", a verb with two different values: the first one has the same meaning as the verb "claudico", lame or crippled, that is; the second one means "closed", "confined", "conclude", "lock up" or, to paraphrase, "define". I read in an article that the link between these two words can be easily recognized by the way a crippled person is limited in his movements, confined even. It's very interesting, really; just think of the English verb "to close": it comes definitely by this Latin root.

I don't like the meaning of this name.
Here in Italy Claudia is not a common name in young women. I think it's a easy name to pronounce.

Hey! "Lame" and "Crippled" came from Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus. It is thought that he suffered from cerebral palsy and yes, was "lame," twitchy, and weak. But he was smart. He brought Britain into the Roman Empire. He built roads, aqueducts and canals across the Roman Empire; these are now hailed as magnificent achievements. Roman history is confusing & there are several Claudius', but THE Claudius, the "I, Claudius" of books and movies is the "lame" one that seems to offend people consumed by the meaning of names. Be proud of our guy. He overcame a disease to become a great ruler, so great that he had to be poisoned.

When I was younger I HATED my name (Claudia). I think the name Claudia is a gorgeous name, and now that I have learned to love me and my name I feel it’s better to stand out than to stand in. Me and Claudia Schiffer both have the same name, and the same birthday! I think of Claudia with tan skin, blue eyes, a blonde wavy/curly hair mostly the wavy part but some days she has gorgeous curls. The one thing that stands out though is the meaning lame. I’ve never met a Claudia in my life. So everyone that has met me I consider a small tiny bit a special, because not many people know a Claudia. My middle name is Elise, which wasn’t a very popular name at the time. I liked the name a lot so sometimes I wish I could be called by my middle name (which my mom did) my friends call me Claudine, Claud, Claud’s, Santa Claud’s, and Cece, as my initials are C.E.C. and then I decided to put an e at the end. Personally, I think you should consider naming your daughter Claudia, even though it means lame, no Claudia I’ve seen on the internet or videos seems lame.

I think this name is absolutely beautiful (with German pronunciation CLOUD-IA). We're currently considering it for our next child if we have a girl. Whilst I love the full name I also think Cloudy would be so cute as a nickname. As for the meaning "lame" I also found the meaning by Anonymous above about 'secure, support, someone to lean on'. However, I have decided that if we are to call one of our next children Claudia I will share with the child a meaning I have created based on the german pronunciation. Clouds are an absolutely beautiful and wonderful creation - they are soft, peaceful and gentle looking; you must look up to see them, which I feel is a beautiful reminder of perspective and optimism; they are made up of 100, 000's of water droplets, which brings an element of cooperation and team work; being water they are the source of Life; and reflecting on their nature - how they are formed through the whole water cycle - they are a beautiful symbol of transformation. And I think Coralie is a beautiful name to go with this as it means "from the sea".

My name is Claudia, pronounced as Cloud-ya. I only met one other Claudia growing up. I didn't love or hate it as a kid but as an adult I absolutely love it. I was named after a girl who consistently held the best result in my Dad's university class. I got curious about the meaning as an adult and the idea of "lame" just didn't make sense -especially given how common it had been with the Romans who would be very unlikely to use a name that symbolized a weakness. Based on my research I give the meaning to secure, or enclose and provide firmness and perpetuity. Or as explained by linguistics: Haven, Safety, Support or One To Lean On.

My name is Claudia Nichole. Growing up, I had constantly found it awkward to say "Hi, I'm Claudia" and I never understood why. I found out what my name meant in Greek (I think that's what it was, the whole lame thing) and I was very hurt and scared others were gonna find out and call me lame. I got the name chlamydia in 5th grade, I believe it was. When I was adopted in 2012 by my aunt, my cousin (I now call her my niece) was unable to pronounce the whole name and so only said Dia. I fell in love with the nickname. I remember thinking, "Hey, when my biological siblings have kids, they can call me Tia Dia, it rolls off the tongue!" So, even now, I go by Dia.

I became obsessed with Hamilton in the summer time, and I went all out with it (mom and dad didn't like that, much, but oh well, I'm 16, I'm supposed to rebel, right?), and I looked more into Lin-Manuel Miranda and discovered In The Heights. I naturally became obsessed with it and noticed that the grandmother in the show was named Abuela Claudia. She puts a wonderful impact on all the characters and I thought "Hey, that will be me one day. This woman, Abuela, she is the type of person that everyone should look up to."

I've encountered one other Claudia in my life. I met her at Hollywood Studios. Mom had shouted "Come along, Claudia!" And another mom looked over and said "Why are you talking to- Oh! I thought you were talking to MY daughter! I'm sorry." And we walked our separate paths laughing.

One thing that made me begin to actually like my name is this livestream with Oceans Ate Alaska on Facebook last year. In summary, I basically made a comment and the drummer, Chris Turner, kept shouting "CLAUDIA!" in his English accent, and the crew on Twitter now has my name in their bio (don't believe me? Check out 432crew_oaa).

Over all, I am loving my name now, but when I was younger, I hated it.

I'm Claudia Grace and I HATED my name when I was about five or six, but now I adore it. I used to get called Cloudia a lot and I'm through and through English so whenever a teacher who is obviously hella English calls me Cloudia I want to go up to the front of the class, write SANTA CLAUS on the board and ask if anyone says Santa Clous! I don't get vicious nicknames, more people just saying Cloudia to gently annoy me or as a mistake. I've had the nickname Pookie since I was a baby (usually only my father calls me Pooks or Pookie) so I would recommend an unrelated nickname that maybe your child could use in everyday life (even though I can't) if you are thinking of naming your baby Claudia. But I genuinely love it now.

My name is Claudia. The reason I got this name was because of the OBGYN doctor who helped my mom on my difficult birth. When I found out the meaning I did not like it and I asked my mom why she gave me such a name. My mom told me that a "NAME" never gave a meaning to a person; the person is the one who gives it the meaning. Now I love my name because I know the real meaning is "thank you from the heart."

I am Klaudia. Not Claudia but Klaudia:)
Part of my life I hated my name, but finally after 43 years I can say - I like it.
My childhood wasn't so easy because of my name - couldn't be easy with a very rare name, in 70's especially, LOL. People struggled to pronounce my name right. I was always the ONLY Klaudia around. Nursery, school, university.
In my whole life I've met only a few more Klaudia's, but my "life best friend" is Klaudia too :))
I know that the meaning of my name and I have to say - I always laughed making fun of it, but in some ways, it is true.
Me and my best friend - we're so different from the other Anna's or Monika's, as teenagers, and so much the same as Klaudia's all our life :)
Could be the name power, I guess :)

It is funny how many Klaudias running around these days in Europe, but once I've realised not every "Klaudia!" shout was address to me - I am ok :)

Love my name today, especially living in UK, where, again I fell like unicorn again haha, being Klaudia - not Claudia, not Clou-dia just

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1b/Pl-Klaudia.ogg#pl

Best regards to all Claudias and Klaudias :)

Please don't name your child Claudia. I have all my life hated it. As a child, others could rhyme their names, not Claudia. Although I was well liked, children would change my name tauntingly to Claw, Clod and Claudhopper.
Most people would not readily remember my uncommon name and call me some other name with a C hard sound like Carla or Cathy. Even people I know well seldom use my name, as 3 syllable names with 2 hard sounds are just not favorable to say. People more readily speak shorter, softer names. People gave me multitudes of unrelated nicknames or just avoid using a name when possible.
Finally, I always have to spell it when talking to phone customer service people. I personally could not name a sweet, healthy newborn "lame". I did eventually, at middle age become physically crippled/lame. If people become what their name suggests, then well...

I'm surprised that the "crippled" or "disabled" meaning is perpetuated on so many websites. From my understanding, the meaning of the name is unclear and linguists and historians debate it. The Claudii name preceded Claudius for some time, and many sources have questioned why a popular name would be in continued use with that meaning, including by freed slaves who had no reason to continue to use a name assigned to them by masters.

"Claudia" has the same linguistic root as "close" and "clause". It's likely the name's meaning is along the lines of "enclose", "surround", "encompass", or "envelop." In fact, some have argued that the meaning "crippled" derives from this other meaning, in the sense of "confined."

It's a shame that the rich linguistic history of this name isn't more widely known. Perhaps some would be more likely to use it if they knew the possible meanings of the name.

Skimming meaning of the name Claudia here from comments and I'm amazed that you don't know the 'pre-Claudius' Latin meaning of the name Claudia. My name is Claudia too and I learned it meant 'lame' at an early age. However, there was a pre-Claudius meaning which has apparently been lost. It's: Gentle lamb. I will say when someone asks what Claudia means - I'm a gentle lame lamb. It adds another layer, no? I have not liked the 'lame' meaning either and it's been rather odd that I have had a personal history of spraining my ankle throughout my life starting around age 19. So it may have become wish fulfillment.

When I gave birth to my first child sixteen years ago (a nine-pound baby who took 30 hours to deliver - I WISH I was exaggerating!) my OB nurse was a wonderful woman named Claudia who got me through the whole ordeal with amazing patience and kindness. I decided right then and there to give the baby her name. Since it turned out to be a boy, I hope she understands why we went with "Joseph" instead, but Nurse Claudia, if you happen to read this, I still think YOU ROCK!

The French say, klohd-jia. I think it's pretty!

My take on the meaning of this name goes a bit farther than simply "crippled". Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (10 BC – 54 AD) is no doubt the progenitor of the "textbook" meaning of this name. He is known to have had some kind of handicap -- a hump, or a club foot, or spina bifida, as examples.

As Caesar of Rome, Claudius was "an able administrator and a great builder of public works. His reign saw an expansion of the empire, including the conquest of Britain. He took a personal interest in the law, presided at public trials, and issued up to twenty edicts a day" (thank you, wikipedia). So, I don't think it's fair to only focus on Claudius' physical limitations when, as a leader of men, he is renowned for his humanitarianism! It's sad, but predictable, that people tend to ruminate on the "ugly" when so much good is staring them in the face. So go ahead and name your daughters "Claudia" and let them know about the "real" meaning of their beautiful name!

My name is Claudia. while growing up I've never met another girl named Claudia. Everyone I know, knows at least 1 - 2 Claudias. After 22 years of living I finally ran into another Claudia!

It's not a very popular name, and I appreciate that my parents named me Claudia. I didn’t get any bullying like other names: icky Vicky, creepy Carrie or things like that. So that’s a good point. My name is pronounced like the German site above. KLOW-dee-a. I personally really don't like the English KLAW-dee-a, reminds me of a big large claw and just sounds weird.

The meaning of the name is “lame, crippled one”. Not that I’m proud of that but I don’t exactly feel strong. People always tell me that I look so confident and strong. I actually feel like I’m too sensitive for this planet. I also put others first. I do everything for my friends, family and for the one I love. Almost to the point of insanity. So I guess this name suits me.

Unfortunately most people are having a hard time to keep my name intact. People seem to like to cut names. So my friends call me Clue. I’m grateful for that! I specifically asked them not to call me KLOW. In Dutch the part “Clau/KLOW” sounds like the word “klauw” which means in “claw”. People also love to stay on the W so that you get a kloWW-Dee-a. But whatever.

Apparently there is even a movie called “Claudia”. Never saw it though. I don’t have any bad experiences with this name. Too bad it isn’t used that often. I like it.
