I like the sound of it and it's nick names. Don't hate Madeleine but it reminds me of the pastries and I don't like Maddy.

Another vote for Francesca, a much nicer name and there are too many Maddies about already.

I don't dislike Madeleine, but Francesca would be my choice of the two.

My cousin is a Francesca and it was lovely when she was a child but its horrible as an adult as it gets shortened to Fran, Franny and she has been called Fanny!

Madeleine. Prefer both long form and shortenings.

Francesca. It's top of my list for next baby.

Don't like Madeleine.

All I think of is Madeleine Mccann so NO to Madeleine. Yes to Francesca

Although I do like Francesca a lot, Madeleine is gorgeous and one of my all-time favourites. So Madeleine.

As a Francesca myself, I wholeheartedly put a vote forward for it. I've always been 'Faya' at home (God knows where it came from) but I've always loved my full name. I quite like Fran too, and was frankie occasionally as a child which my parents liked (but I didn't).

I'm slightly biased, but Madeleine especially with the nn maddie is quite common these days due to it also being the nn for Maddison.
