    Madita!

    I've recently come across Madita (Mah-dee-tah) again, a name I have known for such a long time but that was never on my "name radar".
    It's the german form of the name "Madicken" a character (and book) by Astrid Lindgren.
    Her books (and movies) were a big part of my childhood and I still love so many characters.
    Madicken / Madita are diminutives of Margarete / Margaret, however I'm not such a fan of the full names.

    What do you think of Madita?
    Nickname options that aren't Maddi or Dita?
    Would it work with any of my favourite names (signature), either as a first or one of two middle names?

    I'd love to hear (read) your comments!

    I think it has a sweet sound. I've never heard of it before (though it reminds me of Medea). It's really nice and could work really well as a name. Using names in your signature as middles, I like:

    Madita Clementine
    Madita Eloise
    Madita Juliette
    Madita Leonor (Love this a lot!!)
    Madita Penelope
    Madita Rose

    And for nicknames, maybe:

    May
    Mia
    Maddie
    Dita
    Mada
    Didi (deedee)
    Mita
    Mattie
    Mimi
    Dia

    It's interesting. I like it as a middle with your "a" ending names, especially Clara.

    Clara Madita, sounds musical! I may say it all day long! Claramadita, Claramadita!!

    I also thought of Medea for some reason. Also Macrina.
    I really want to like the name, but all I see is "mad" even though Madeleine and Madchen don't bother me.

    My first thought was 'little mad one'. It might work in German or Swedish, but it's confusing in English.
