The name Madrigal is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "song for unaccompanied voices".

Madrigal might be a pretty and highly distinctive choice for a child of a musical family--or for the parent looking for a less conventional path to the nickname Maddie than Madeline or Madison . Definitely more striking than Cadence or even the increasingly popular Aria.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Still I don't like the "mad" sound. Also sounds like a smoosh of Madison and Abigail, though I know it isn't.

Strong and lovely name, though I can't think why anyone would want to find a way to Maddie these days.

Tina_and_Bert Says:


This is a surprisingly lovely word-name--though perhaps best left to eccentric musicians!
