Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
The Y definitely softens the spelling and makes it look much more feminine. Language is constantly evolving and the US is definitely adopting the pattern of using the Y spellings of traditional male surnames to feminize. Many of the variant forms I have seen in past years (including this one) are fun, flirty, and refreshing.

Y does NOT make a name feminine.

Another illiterate spelling of a common name...

I think Madisyn spelled differently is unique in a way. It sounds fancy and gives this sort of royalty and beauty to the name. Madison spelled commonly sounds dull. (Anyone with their name spelled like that I'm not criticizing you!)
The common way you spell Madison does give off the royalty vibe but not much of the unique vibe, but Madison spelled differently is still a beautiful name, even the original.

A famous bearer is Madisyn Shipman, she is an actress in Nickelodeon's Game Shakers and in The Peanuts Movie (2015).

I have the name Madisyn and I believe this name is beautiful. It just makes me feel different and people think my name is cute and yes, it does get a little annoying with people misspelling it, but it is a wonderful name that my parents loved.

Definitely the worst spelling of this annoying and obnoxious name. Sorry but can we please just stick with Madison? (Maybe Maddison) why does Madisyn & Madyson need to be listed as well? 2 spelling variations of this name within the charts would be far better than 4!

Also, no offence to anyone who bears this name, named their child this, plan to or know someone with this name (any spelling variation) I just picture a child that is bratty and spoiled turned fake-personality adult. Also if you do go with this name and with this spelling, you will look forever illiterate and uneducated but if that doesn't bother you...

My girlfriend's name is Madisyn, I think it's very pretty. Madison is so general and boring, why not make your name interesting? Also, does anyone know the meaning of Madisyn? I looked it up but I can only find info on Madison.

To the poster above, I think the only reason you can only find info on Madison is because Madisyn is the same name, just a different spelling. They both have the same meaning, I suppose.

Bad version of madison.

Ugly, harsh, trendy name. Now, it's illiterate too!

I really dislike all the trendy, kre8tive spellings for perfectly lovely names like Madison, Catherine, Caitilin, Jasmine, etc. I don't get why people need to misspell their children's names. It just makes it look cheap, overly trendy, and trashy.

Cute name. But I like Madison better. Seems like people would always misspell it this way.

I love this name. It's so sweet!

What is it with Americans today, thinking a 'y' in the position of the unstressed vowel turns a name feminine? One could argue, of course, that since the ''syn'' means nothing, the name doesn't have the masculine meaning 'son of', but it's still just a silly, youthful spelling of Madison. Very bland.

I actually prefer this spelling over Madison. Now NO ONE can say, "Oh, Madisyn is a boy's name."

Madisyn is a variant of Madison - a boys name. You can't change the meaning just by replacing the 'o' with an 'y'.

I totally agree. Madison seems like James Madison and yet Madisyn sounds like 'Maddie-sin" or "Maddie-sun" not 'Maddie-son". I'd pick this name over Maddison or Madison any day!

I know a family who is going to adopt a little Chinese baby girl and name her Madisyn, because where we live there is an area called Madison County, and they did not want it to be spelled like the county name. This name is unique, and I think the little girl will like it. I know I do!
