Madelyn or Madeline

  • Hi all,

    We just started trying for our third baby, but we have been thinking of names for a year already! We are thinking of Madeline for a girl. Do you like it? And if so, do you prefer Madelyn or Madeline? We want it pronounced "Mad-eh-lynn". Would you prefer having to correct the way people pronounce your name or the way people spell your name?

    Thanks!!

  • I go by Sharyn instead of Sharon so guess which one I like
     
    But how about Madelynn?

  • I agree with the above; adding that extra 'N" will ensure it is also pronouced correctly.

  • Madelynn. Its unique and the extra N will make sure people know how to pronounce it

  • I dont think adding an n will make a difference... Madeline is the 1 that will get pronounced wrong... Since it might be pronounced with a long I sound... My name is Shauna and I would rather Ppl say it right and misspell it...and they usually do... Shawna...Shanna etc.
