I would imagine alot of people wouldn't be able to spell Madeleine right. I love the spelling though

Quoting kthx.:" I know, it just looks so weird to me. Sort of juvenile. Well, it's good to know others will pronounce it Mad-uh-lyn :D"


That's the vibe I get from it also.

I like Madeline pronounced the other way Mad-uh-line. But, I know you can pronounce it they way you like.



I hate Madalyn. Just looks weird!

Quoting kthx.:" Okay so... SO said he likes the name (pronounced) Mad-Uh-Lynn. I strongly dislike Madalyn/Madalynn.... ... [snip!] ... Madalyn? I like the NN Maddie :lol: Maddie Sue 8) I'm sure this will change, btw.... but it's just a thought right now, lol."


I like Madeline. I don't like it spelled Madelynn either. Madalyn looks "Mad-uh-lin". I guess it depends on how you pronounce it. I prefer Madeline(Mad-uh-line).

I always pronounce Madeline/Madeleine as mad-ah-lyn unless I'm correct otherwise.



Madalyn and all those other spellings with a Y are ugly to me, it ruins the name.

Quoting Devil Duckie:" but that would be incorrect. "


NO, lol, it's not.



Technically-



Madeleine = mad-ah-len (confirmed by my francophone friends)



Madeline = both mad-ah-line and mad-ah-lyn, both are correct.

It sounds a little different in French is all. Here is would likely be said lyn.

It might have to do with accent.
