Madeline

woman from Magdala
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 206
Feminine and graceful, Madeline possesses ancient roots that can be traced to Magdala, the hometown of Mary Magdalene. The French version Madeleine carries an extra E that makes it look more sophisticated; it's also the name of a delicious cookie inspired by a young girl. And the classic children's book heroine Madeline is a schoolgirl who uses the Anglo spelling but lives in Paris. Both Madeleine Albright, the first female Secretary of State, and children’s author Madeleine L’Engle spell their names the French way.
