Cooler and updated version of Madison. This name should be more popular for real. Imagine being named Madelief! Like that just sounds so strong! And the meaning is so sweet, just simple daisy- I love it.

The English translation of this Dutch name is something like mum's love or mum's darling. I think it's a fine name for a (little) girl.

Madelief is the name of the central character in a popular series of Dutch children's books by Guus Kuijer.

I love the name Madelief. I like that it's very uncommon (I don't think I've ever actually met a Madelief before) but still familiar because of the flower so no one would ever spell or pronounce it wrong (here in the Netherlands, at least). I also like that it's a flower name yet it still sounds strong and it has a sort of timeless feel to it. I am using this for a character in one of my stories.

I came across Madelief today on another website and I think it's just lovely! It's such a unique and pretty spin on overused Madeline/Madeleine.

FINALLY! This name was added to the database!
Anyway, I'm not even Dutch, but I think this is a lovely name.
