Comments for MADALYN:

I really like this spelling of the more common 'Madeleine,' as it seems to have more Old English influences.

I love it! It is much prettier and more modern than Madeline!

I like this spelling a lot better than Madeline.

If I ever have a daughter I am going to name her Madalyn. I love the spelling, because it contains the nicknames of two of the most influential people in my life, My aunt Linda [Lyn] and my uncle Marty [Mad]. A fantastic name.

Oh no, not another -lyn name.

I think that the spelling "Madilyn" is better but overall I love the name.

I will be blunt: This is a horrid butchering of an otherwise decent name. "Madalyn" is not "Madeline," and should not be considered a "variant." It is a kre8tiv, made-up version, with the popular ending of "-lyn" (which actually appears very unintelligent if it were not included in the true, original form-- hence: this name.)
While yes, I understand the point of honoring loved-ones, you can very well still do so, and, keep the name acceptable in the professional world (made-up names have a tendency to slow career progress, unfortunately for the innocent bearer).

This spelling has always thrown me off a bit... too similar to the instrument "Mandolin." However, the correct form has never done so.

Saying this name has old English influences is like saying Kaiden is a classic, timeless name and James is modern trash.

Looks like Madeleine was chucked into the trendy machine and it spat out this.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually like this spelling. It's the pronunciation that counts, and the name is simply beautiful. But this is about as creative with the spelling as I would get. Things like Madilynn, Madolyn, Maddelynne, etc. Are just ugly.
