Because it's a beautiful name . It's short for Madeline/aine/eine which is gorgeous. Genuinely cannot see the issue.
If you are being that silly about names surely almost all of them are off the cards? Can't use Amanda because it has 'man' in it; Benedict because there's a 'dic' in there; Jessica because there is 'sic'.

It's my daughter's name, (Madeleine shortened to Maddie) what's wrong with it? In over 17 years she has never once been called 'mad' in the pejorative sense because of it, even though one of our family shortened versions is Mad or Mads.
There are a few Maddie or Maddys in her school, most are shortened from Madison these days.

I also don't get the repeated mentions and threads about the absolute love for the name. Madeleine or Maddison, or Maddie. Honestly it will forever bring Madeline McCann to the forefront of my mind, the poor soul.
This. ^ Didn't want to be the one to say it.
