Maddox is my last name and I’ve gone by it in some circles. It’s never felt too masculine for me.

Why subject a girl to something as yooneek as Maddyx? Why don't girls get spellings that can be taken seriously?

I think Maddyx would be better suited for a girl. Maddox is very masculine.

Cute name, but I'm not a fan of the nickname Maddie. I'd prefer Maddox on a boy anyhow, but if you must... I really can't stop you anyway. :P
