Well, I tend to go more for traditional names with a history or literary background, so I am going to say Matilda even though I like Mattea.

I would not have said I liked Matilda at all until I met the cutest little Matilda in my DD's art class about 2 years ago.

You could always have Matilda as a full name and abbreviate it to Mattea or Mattie.
