The name Maud is actually a variation of the name Matilda. It is believed that when Queen Matilda of William the Conqueror brought the name Matilda to England it was pronounced as Maud, this was way back in the eleventh century. It was also the name of a saint. Though Matilda is of Old German origin, Maud is sometimes believed to be of French origin. Maud is supposed to mean "strength in battle" and the name is sometimes spelt as either Maude or Maudie. Maud is a female name.

Though Maud was perhaps the name of Empress Matilda at first, several other famous characters including royals have sported this name. Princess Maud of Fife who lived between 1893 and 1945 a member of the Royal Family in Britain along with Maud of Wales who lived between 1869 and 1938 both shared the name Maud. Maud Mulder is the name of a Dutch singer as well.
