In general, I do feel that this name has way too many alternative spellings. I have always favoured either Madeleine or Madelyn. However, this one, which I don't recall seeing before, has appeal. It reminded me instantly of Marilyn, another favourite name of mine. For that reason, and because it looks attractive somehow, the variant seems to have more purpose than most.

I find this spelling to be implacably unsettling.

I like Madelyn, Madaline, and Madeleine. I can stand Madeline. But this spelling seems off I me.
