Madigan Origin and Meaning

The name Madigan is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Irish origin meaning "little dog".
A jovial and jaunty Irish name, the title of a long-gone TV crime drama, this would make an appealing choice. Slight downside: Maddy is already a mega-popular nickname for Madeline/Madelyn and Madison, so this Mad- name might not feel as distinctive as the stats would suggest.
