Can't we find something positive to say instead of constant negativity? And who cares if the name means "son of Maude."

However, not so much in our area of the country...DC area. I do not like it when people make the spelling of the name trendy, by changing the "i" to "y" and the "o" to and "e"...it's just trashy to me! It's a bold, majestic and beautiful name and should be kept in its original form of spelling. However, you can't control stupidity. There are many names that go though a popular time, but we used the name at a time when it was not so. In the years since that it has gotten so popular, I look at it as imitation is the best form of flattery." Jan. 26, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "Sure, it's common. I knew a woman in the mid-90's with two little girls, Nikki & Madison. I know people who have named their daughters some VERY trendy and/or overplayed names: Ashley, Jennifer, Brittany or Britney, Amber, Michelle, Nicole, Taylor, Logan, Mackenzie, Caleigh, Meghan or Meagan, Chelsea, Jordan, Kelsey, Kelli, Chelleigh, Erin, Melissa, Amanda, Katie, Kristin, etc. Now classic names like Hannah & Grace are becoming "trendy"! Madison could be a unique name for a girl if it weren't so commonly used. Same with Taylor. I've seen different spellings of Madison too: Maddyson, Madyson, Madisyn, Maddicyn, Maddicynne. Silly. There are so many unique, feminine names out there...and if you have to give your daughter a trendy name, at least spell it in a way that can be understood! Besides, children will grow up and believe it or not, they will be teased for having silly-trendy cutesy names. Mackenzie Phillips used to be a heroin addict but there's a crop of trendy moms naming their girls Mackenzie. Most trendy names sound overly played-out, silly, pretentious, masculine, or adult filmy." Feb. 7, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "From wikipedia: Madison is also a very popular female given name in the United States and a less popular male given name. There is a curious story behind this popularity: According to the Social Security Administration, it was practically non-existent as a girl's name before 1985 (and it in fact means "Son of Maud"), Madison rose to being the second most popular name given to female babies in 2002. This phenomenal rise in popularity can probably be traced back to the 1984 movie Splash, where Daryl Hannah played a mermaid who adopted the name 'Madison' after seeing a Madison Avenue street sign. When the selection is made, Tom Hanks' character says "but Madison isn't a name!" According to the Social Security Administration, Madison can be found within the top 1000 names for boys up until about 1952. It returned to the top 1000 ranked boy's names in 1987 and remains one of the lower ranking boy's names in the US." Aug. 9, 2005: Report as inappropriate
