  • I like the pronumciation but not the spelling. She will constantly be asked "How do you say that?" And then there's the word "Mad" in her name.

  • I like the name but not the spelling. The spelling looks like awkward and forced. Perhaps Madalee?

  • It's cute but the way you have it spelled makes me think it's pronounced mad-uh-lay.

  • Very cute and unique but watch for spelling as an above poster said. Don't get too crazy, then the child will spend her whole life explaining her name...

  • I would pronounce Madalei (mad-uh-lay)
    Having it pronounced like (mad-uh-lee) i would spell it Madaley, Madalee

    Honestly though i dont like it. It just sounds like Madly.

  • I think the pronunciation is super cute, but you may run the risk of getting irritated by people getting it wrong due to the spelling. I say do what makes you happy though. :)

  • Not sure, it would cause a lot of confusion on how to pronounce it.
