Madelyn

woman from Magdala
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 164
This variation of the classic Madeline gets an update with a Y to join a league of –lyn names: Carolyn, Jaclyn, Roslyn and Gwendolyn. Can you think of more names where you could replace an –ine with a –yn? You might be surprised to hear that Madelyn is not a new innovation. According to Social Security data, the name has been around since at least 1900—and even more alternative spellings have cropped up on the popularity lists since then: Madilyn, Madelynn, Madilynn, Madalyn and Madalynn.
