Sy Scholfield quotes "Malwida von Meysenbug: 'Die Malerei war immer meine liebste Kunst'" by Vera Leuschner (Verlag für Regionalgeschichte, 2002). p. 83: "Ihr seltsamer Vorname ist eine Kontamination aus den verschiedenen weiblichen Vornamen ihrer Patinnen. Vgl. Stadt, D 72 von Meysenbug, Nr. 122: Auszug aus dem Taufregister vermutlich der Oberneustadt - in Kassel. Der Eintrag Nr. 79 lautet: »Malwida ... Hansel T[ochter] geb. den 28t October, Nachts 11 1/2 Uhr, getauft den 3t December."
Translation: Her first name is a strange concoction of the various female first names of her godmothers. See: City, D. 72, Meysenbug, No. 122: Extract from the parish register probably the Oberneustadt - in Kassel. The entry No. 79 reads: "Malwida ... Hansel T[ochter] born the 28th October, 11 1/2 o'clock at night, baptized the 3rd December".
