What do you think of this name for a girl? I was reading a story for my engl class because I have a literary analysis paper due soon and it was the main characters name. It was based in the late 1800s and if I'm not mistaking they're in France or England...Oh yeah how is it pronounced? I say it Math-i-lide (I think that's how I write that out lol).

I believe it is pronounced ma-tilled and I love it. I love bygone names though. I have a Lenore and a Charlotte

I would say it Ma-til-da, or maybe that's a different name all together, I think I like it.

I knew I was saying it wrong lol. It may be worse because I'm a very bad writer pronounciater lol (if that makes sense).

It's like ma- tild. It's French. My daughter is Matilda which is the same name but the Germanic form.
