Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn was one of the first to put this nickname on the birth certificate. Cute for a child, but we recommend giving her the option of the full name for later use.

I love Maddie as a nickname, but don't personally feel that it works well as a full name. I adore Madeleine or Madelyn.
Nope. I like the name Madeline, but an unpleasant girl I met named Maddie has ruined it for me.
My daughter, Madeline, goes by Maddie and it is very cute. I also chose to name Maddie's twin sister Alex after Alex Morgan.
I can't help it.
I think it's fine as a nickname, but it's too cutesy for a formal name. I dislike Madison (and Madisyn, Maddsen, Madecyn, etc. etc.), but Madeline, Madeleine, or even Madelief are all lovely options for a longer formal name.
