Madelynn Origin and Meaning

The name Madelynn is a girl's name of French origin meaning "woman from Magdala or high tower".

Madelynn is the fourth most popular variation of this durably popular name, with Madelyn ranking first in the Top 100, Madeline dropping to the Number 2 spot, the French Madeleine taking third place, and Madelynn coming in fourth but still ranking in the Top 500.

In fact, all forms of this name have held their own over the past 20 years, proving that this name is more than a momentary fad. The only problem, if you see it as one, is that there are an awful lot of Madelynns, little and not so little, around at this point, nearly 8000 baby girls born in the US last year alone with just these four spellings. That's as many baby girls as were named Harper.

And then there are all the other spelling variations plus all the little girls called Maddie. It's an adorable name with an august history, but it is much more popular than you might guess.
