Meaning & History
Traditionally found in the Poitou-Charentes region of France, this name is of debated origin and meaning. Current theories include a derivation of Mathilde and a feminine form of the archaic masculine name Mathelin (which itself survives only as a surname today). Mathelin used to be both a diminutive of Mathel, which was a diminutive of Mathieu, and a vernacular form of Mathurin.
