    Madeleine/Madeline

    I can't help myself from loving this name right now, I've tried and I can't help it.


    I'm pronouncing it like mad-uh-line. I understand the pronunciation for Madeleine is with the "ehn" sound. Each spelling has their pros and cons; I like Madeleine in cursive and on paper, while I love the children's book Madeline and straight forward pronunciation. Which spelling would you go with?

    What middles would you pair with Madeleine? The last family name I have is Louise, but I feel it's a little L heavy with Madeleine/Madeline. I was also thinking Mae, in honor of my best friend, but I'm weary of M alliteration. I'm pretty open to all suggestions, except word names.

    Thank you.

    If you want the "line" ending, then I think the spelling Madeline would be the way to go. I don't think Madeline Louise is that bad but Madeline Mae is odd. If you don't mind the literary nod, what about Madeline Louisa Mae as a combo?

    Madeline is my daughters middle name, so I love it and find it very beautiful. I prefer it to Madeleine as I feel Madeleine is more serious and I don't like the repetitive "e" in the name.

    I figured the Madeline spelling would be the consensus. Would it be too much if I then dressed her in a little yellow trapeze coat?

    I love the suggestions of:

    Madeline Faye
    Madeline Ruth
    Madeline Kate
    Madeline Claire
    Madeline Clara
    Madeline Fiona

    Are there any other suggestions?
