WDYT? NN would most likely be Tilly since there are so many Mati / maddies out there due to the popularity of Maddison

not sure how i feel about it so I'd like to hear your thoughts and associations

I like Matilda, it has grown on me, but I am not sure if I would use it.

It has really grown on me and now I think it is really cute. I am not so sure about Tilly though...

I think Matilda is a beautiful name, I'm not too crazy about the nickname Tilly though, I would probably just call her by her full name, it's too beautiful to shorten in my opinion.

My 7 year old has speech issues so Matilda would have to be shortened for her sake. Plus the 2 and 1 yr old would probably have trouble saying it too. Pretty much me the hub and the 5 yr old would be the only ones cool with always saying a long name

I like it. I'd prefer the full name over the nickname Tilly... How about Millie as a NN?
