This is my grandmother's maiden name. I think it has a soft feminine sound to it.

Madden is an anglicization of the Irish surname O'Madáin. This is derived from a personal name possibly derived from the word madra meaning "dog; hound" and the diminutive suffix -ín. In modern American usage, it may be influenced by John Madden, the NFL football coach who also lent his name to a series of video games.
