Meaning:son of the mighty warrior
Madison began life as a British surname, then a highly popular given name all over the world. The double-D version, which is unisex, is meant to differentiate your son or daughter from all the single-D kids out there, but in reality, everyone will probably forget the distinction and consider them a Madison. Still, the alternative spelling has many fans among parents—apparently, that extra letter makes a big impression.
