- I really like this name because as trendy as it is, it's so cute sounding and addictive! And also, Maddie is a great nickname.
- Okay, so it's popular..but when we had our Maddy 6 years ago it wasn't. We named her Madison because our son, who was two at the time asked to name her "Medicine", so it has special meaning! That aside, I loved the old fashioned named "Maddy" (Maddie, Mattie) and wanted to put it with a newer name. While Madison does bring to mind a well poised woman, Maddy brings to mind a little girl with dirt on her nose and a ready smile.
- This was the name of my mothers friend who was tragically killed in a car crash three and a half years ago. She was an amazing woman and I think her name is amazing too.
- My daugher, and she is exactly like the name, pure goodness, sunshine, my polyanna. goes by maddy. Also I agree with all the other personias
madisno carries such as wealth, strength, class, and also very spunky.
- means "warriors son", but could be "warriors daughter" since it's more of a feminine sounding name.
- I choose the name madison when I was 10 and always vowed to name my first girl madison, I named all my dolls madison etc... For some reason it has always stuck with me and to this day I think I will still use it.
- I've loved this name since "Splash" with Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah. Plus, it gives the nickname Maddie (or Maddy), which I think is adorable.
- sounds very pretty
- I picture an adorable little thing I could call Maddie. Small in stature with a big personality. The way my daughter would surely be.
- Because it's trendy and I also think it's a name associated with wealth.
- This is a very strong and independent sounding name. I also love "Maddie" for short.
- Saw it in a baby place and liked it.
- Madison Blee: O.K. Blee is supposed to be Lee but thats what was put on her baby shower cake by mistake. I thought it was kinda cute.
- Madison Elizabeth: A pretty name....I like it a lot, and I have for quite some time now!!!
- Madison Kate: it's just pretty. Can call her Maddie.
- Madison Rae: I was born in the car on Madison street, and Rae is my mother's middle name
Madison comes from an English surname, meaning "son of Maud." It was first widely used in the USA in the mid 1980's, following the movie Splash, in which the main character, a mermaid, calls herself Madison after the street sign of Madison Avenue in NYC. As of 2010, it has been in the top 10 baby names in the USA for 13 years.
