SO had finally picked a name he likes, Madeline, but I'm worried about it being pronounced wrong. Since I don't want to influence people I'm not putting how we want it pronounced but please vote and let me know how you say it.

Well it's a French name spelt Madeleine and pronounced "Mad-len".

If that's how you're spelling it then I would say "line" I like the name Maddalyn and I would say that "Lynn"

Maddalyn is a bastardized spelling of Madeline.
