Meaning:Mighty in battle; Son of Matthew; Son of Maude
Adding a little more oomph to the classic Madison, Maddison is a gender-neutral name made for those with a tougher edge. Perhaps Maddison's close proximity to the German Matilda and the Medieval madde—meaning “mighty in battle"—is what invigorates it with such ferocity. Maddison can also mean "son of Matthew" or "son of Maude," making it a great choice if you want to connect baby to one of their older family members. In any case, Maddison's firm roots in the German Maude give it plenty of grit to work with. After all, as a powerful battler instilled with precision and an appetite for action, young Maddison has everything needed to slay in any field.
