Pretty Name

I've always been called Madeleine by my great aunt because she couldn't remember my name. If i ever have a daughter i would name her Madelyn but i would pronounce it madel-i-ne. It's soft and pretty. And her middle name would be Elizabeth. It sounds royal.
My beautiful baby girl ♥

I named my daughter Madeleine 5 years ago. People always mispronounce it, but when said correctly, it's gorgeous. Madeleine is pronounced Mad-Uh-LEHN not Mad-Uh-Lynn. Madeleine loves her name, and we almost never shorten it to Mady because it's so beautiful long.

I'm French and my mother's name is Madeleine Helene but in her class there was another one when she was young so she had to choose her third name Veronique and she decided to keep that third name for everyone (only her parents were calling her Madeleine, and also she kept it for the administration. She is now Mamie Vero and I prefer that. For me, Madeleine seems very old and when there was all that fuss about the disappeard 4 year old girl, I thought what a strange name for a little girl, and especially so pretty!
