Madison or Violet?

( I do like Madeleine but not sure about the different pronunciations)

Oh dear not Madison.

Violet is a beautiful name though.

Violet out of those two, but I love Madeleine.

Madison sounds like a lap dancer.

Violet is nice, Madeleine is lovely.

Definitely Violet.

Violet is a beautiful, classic name.
Madison is an avenue hideous.

Please call your new DD Violet smile

Violet 💜 Not only do I have a beautiful 18 month old with the name but I've never seen the appeal of Madison personally.

Violet, 100%

Sophronia Sat 11-Aug-18 12:38:39

Definitely Violet!

I really don't like Madison. Violet is lovely

I didn't think Madison would evoke such strong reactions. I love Madison or Maddie for short I would definitely prefer it to Violet. My taste is usually quite old fashioned. Violet is lovely but for me, it reminds me of those awful sweets!

Violet is nicer, I like Madeleine too though.

FogCutter Sat 11-Aug-18 13:36:17

Violet is lovely, so is madeleine.

Madison I really don't like.

17caterpillars1mouse Sat 11-Aug-18 13:36:56

Violet out of the two by I much prefer Madeleine

I don't mind Madison or Violet but Violet has less negative connetations connected with it

Not Madison, it is very dated.

Violet is beautiful, but Madeleine is even better.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 11-Aug-18 13:38:46

Violet is gorgeous. Madison just screams chav to me.

HildaOgdensFlyingDucks Sat 11-Aug-18 13:44:18

Violet is a beautiful name but was vetoed by my DH for, apparently, "sounding like 'violent'." Pah! It's a gorgeous name, go with it.

Madeleine is lovely too. You were never going to get Madison past the MN jury, tho...!

Violet is awful, one of my most disliked names. Not all flowers work as names and that’s one. All I see is Violent with a letter missing. And then I imagine Violet Beauregarde from Roald Dahl. Sorry OP.

Nobody used Madison as a first name before the film Splash. I think of it as downmarket and looks like I’m not the only one, from this thread.

Madeleine on the other hand is a lovely name.

Violet is pretty. As is Rose. Madison calls to mind a boxing stadium.

Branleuse Sat 11-Aug-18 13:50:28

Madison is a JOKE NAME FROM SPLASH. its not a real name.

Its like calling your kid Avenue
