    I think Mathilda looks softer and so much prettier. Plus it's the correct spelling so go for it!

    It's looks nice with the H but I'm all for common spellings because I wouldn't want for them to constantly spell their name out when they are older more so. At the same time I think names have become really obscure these days so more and more people ask to confirm spellings for even the most common names just in case it has a weird spelling so she may get asked to spell it regardless!

    My name is definitely not unusual and spelt the most popular way and yet I get asked to spell it! I always refer back to a celebrity that has the same name and same spelling but it's surprising the people have to confirm how to spell it! Turns out there are a lot of variations to it!!!

    Go with what you like. It's not often you get to name a person.
    I agree with Moxy.

    I have a friend called Jane. People ask her constantly how to spell her name.

    Seriously don't worry about it. Go with what you love.
