Comments for the name Madilyn

Comments for MADILYN:

I prefer this spelling over Madeline and Madeleine because there's no question how it's pronounced. I think it's strong, feminine, and wholesome. It's also a nice step up from the masculine Madison which people seem to think looks good on girls.

Ugh. This looks like it would be pronounced maddie-lyn rather than mad-a-lyn. I love the name Madeleine (that's my favorite spelling personally) and I have learned to tolerate variants like Madelyn, Madalyn, and even Madelynn, but I just really don't like this. The whole pronunciation thing really isn't that big of a deal. Madeleine is the name of a type of food and there are various famous bearers, so many people are aware of how to say it. And if they say -line, who cares? All you have to do is correct them. And the -line pronunciation is actually really pretty in my opinion :)
