If you don't like this, here are some other variations - Madison, Madason, madeson, Madisin, madasin, madasyn, madesyn, madesin
Madasyn is also cute.
Since Madison is so popular, I think this is a cute twist on a pretty name!
To clarify, I've never in my life heard ANY name with a -son ending [Carson, Tyson, Addison, Dawson, Jason, Madison, Edison, Emerson] actually pronounced like the word son. It's always been like sin. Apparently that's not the same way in other areas so it's probably a dialect or accent thing. [I'm from the American Midwest]
That's surprising that you've never once in your life heard Madison pronounced as it's spelled.
Maybe it's different elsewhere, but Madison and all other variants are the same pronunciation. MAD-ih-sin. I've never heard anyone say MAD-ih-son in my life.
I don't know if I would say that "most people hate this name". Clearly, plenty of people still use it. Personally, I'm not a fan of this spelling variation, but I agree with you that Madison is a pretty name. I would say that it's more a case of the name having been popular for so long. People would prefer to hear some fresh names. Whilst you could say the same about other super popular names, such as Emma, these fall more into the "classic" category. Madison isn't a bad name at all, but it has been so over-used. Also, so many people would rather use Madeleine, Madeline, Madelyn, etc, to get to the same Maddie nickname. Those are certainly more classic names, that will still sound good, even when they inevitably drop in popularity and earn the "dated" label, which is routinely applied to any name that used to be more popular in recent years.
Because a Y does not replace an O and retain the same pronunciation. Madison is mad-I-SON while this would be mad-I-SIN. I'd almost be tempted to use mad-I-sine if I didn't know it was a creative spelling of Madison.
I thought it was the same (??)Unless it's from MAD-i-sun to MAD-i-sin
in what variation of the English language does -syn all of a sudden mean "daughter". I feel the same aversion to "Emersyn" *cringe*
Not really sure why you would spell it like this as the pronunciation changes.
I know must people hate this name but i think it's pretty. :)
