    Maddie or Maddy. JMO though.

    I agree. Not a fan of names ending in "i" and Mady just seems awkward, like it would sound more like Made-ie.
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    Maddi only b/c my name is Shelli. My family ends all names sounding in "Eee" with an "I" to make it less confusing. My oldest cousin's name ended in an I and so my mom did mine that way so my family would remember easily!

    I agree with Shelli. Names ending with "i" are cool.

    I prefer Maddy, but I'd probably call her by the whole name of Madelyn. In general I'm not a fan of names that can be shortened to an e-sound ending, or shortened at all actually. After a lifetime of being called Susie, Suzy, suzie, etc., I preferred to name my kids with names that can't easily be shortened.

    I'd go with Madeline, first of all, rather than the alternate spelling.

    And Maddie.

    I actually prefer Madi, myself. It's more exotic. Or something. Haha.

    My soon to be stepdaughter is Madelynn and she frequently goes by Maddy.

    Maddie. Maddy looks weird to me for some reason, Madi and Mady would make me want to say made-y. Maddi looks incomplete, like the e is hiding.

    Hah, I agree on all points!

    Although, I might be biased because I know quite a few people who spell it with the "ie".

    I don't know if this is right, but the different spellings make me think of different pronunciations- Mad-uh-line vs Mad-uh-lin.

    Also- Maddie or Madi.

    This. I also agree with whoever suggested spelling it Madeline.

    CurlyEyes, your signature made me laugh. :)

    Ditto. I prefer traditional spellings, it saves someone from a lifetime of having to spell out their name.

    Oh, this is very true. Even worse when it's constantly mispronounced. :angry5: It's a harsh fate...

    Or Madeleine.

    I agree with those who said that Mady looks like it should be said as made-y.
    Yes, my tail is naturally curly.
    No, it was NOT me who cried 'wee wee wee wee wee' all the way home.

    Totally agree!! At 48 years old - Susie/Suzie/Suzy, etc. does not fit me. I also named my daughter with a name that could not be shortened.

    Okay, this is kind of embarassing but my daughter's name is spelled exactly how it is pronounced:

    M A D A L I N E, Madaline -- long I.

    The embarassing part....We knew what we wanted her name to be, but hadn't worked out the spelling when I gave birth to her. When the hospital people came in and stood over us while filled out the forms, we were exhausted and just not thinking clearly, so we spelled it the way it sounded. icon11.gif It wasn't until later that I realized it was "wrong". I think she's probably not going to like me one day....

    We call her by her full first name all the time, but we call her by her middle name every so often, it just fits sometimes.

    Yes, that is why I named my baby a short name, I don't like it when people shorten names to a nickname. But I actually voted for Maddie. That just makes the most sense in my mind when I read it.
