Matilda

Gender: female
U.S. rank in 2004: not in the top 1000
U.S. rank in 1900: 178
Namesake: Matilda of Flanders, England's smallest queen!



Despite its non-pacifist origin (it means "mighty warrior"), today Matilda is slyly hip, shaking off its great-grandma status. Tillie is a cool flapperesque nickname, far preferable to Miranda's Randy.

Discuss!
