Which name? Can I just say... I know they're not to everyone's taste - some may see them as 'chavvy' (something I just don't agree with (I think it's very snobby)) so I don't need people saying that smile would just like to know which is your favourite! These spellings are set in stone smile

Of the three, Madison.

I did say the spellings were set in stone grin so it wouldn't be Maisie!

Maisie, because that's the correct spelling.

France88 Sun 25-Dec-16 23:29:51

hmm it's not going to be Maisie...

grin the names board gets better and better.

"These spellings are set in stone"

<everyone suggests different spelling>

OP I am biased but Madison. And thank you for spelling it like that rather than Maddison/Madysin/Maddacen.

I like Macy. Maisy is ok. But my spell check has just tried to change it to 'Amish' hmm and it reminds me a bit too much of Maisie, which is very twee and wet imo.

Madison is ok but I honestly prefer Macy.

France88 Sun 25-Dec-16 23:39:26

Thank you grin

I just think Maisy looks more like a proper name! I do prefer 'original' spellings (hence Madison and Macy) but there are a few that are an exception!

I like all three of those names smile

I love Madison best smile but both the Madisons I know are normally called Madi/Maddy so if you don't like those nicknames then bare that in mind

I like Macy as well

I like how Maisy sounds but she would probably spend her life correcting people who spell it Maisie (my spell check recognises Maisie but not Maisy)

France88 Sun 25-Dec-16 23:55:06

I love Maddie, so have no problem with people using that NN smile

Yeah, I know what you mean about having her having to spell her name out (if we went with Maisy) but I feel like she would anyway. Lots of people spell it Maddison/Macey/Macie, etc. smile it might be quite easy to say "Maisy, with a y" - I have to with my name!

Thank you though smile

I like Macy the best. I really dislike Maisy as its just too sickly sweet and Maddie as a nickname is alright but used a lot whereas Macy is different yet known.

1. Macy
2. Madison
3. Maisy

I chose Macy over Madison because there are a lot of Maddies/Madeleines/Madisons around at the moment, whereas Macy is very uncommon. I don't like Maisy or Maisie at all.

Funnily enough I met a dm of a Macy the same age as my eldest and complemented her on the lovely name. She said with hindsight it was a massive error because no one could spell or say it correctly and her poor dd was constantly being called Maisie. She said.she would choose a different name given her time again.

So purely for this reason I would go with Maisie, spelled Maisie so that most people get it right.

I'm not keen on madison personally!

Maisy doesn't look like a weird spelling to me. It looks like Milly/Millie iyswim.

Maisy is lovely.
I like the other two names but I think I like Maisy best.

Namechangeemergency Mon 26-Dec-16 13:19:29

I just googled it out of curiosity.
Maisy seems a pretty standard spelling.

Maisy (and I would spell it like that too, OP)
