Name Meaning

from the Latin name Claudius . It was borne by various early saints, but its popularity in France is largely due to the fame of the 7th-century St Claude of Besançon. This form is widely used in the English-speaking world and has superseded Claud as the preferred spelling in Britain and the United States.
