Madilyn, sometimes spelled Madilynn too, is a modern alternative to the traditional English spelling of Madeline. Originating from the biblical name for Mary Magdalene, meaning ‘the lady from Magdala’, this name has been around for centuries. This contemporary spelling, however, first appeared in 1998 and has grown in popularity since. The contemporary suffix -lyn gives it a distinctly modern feel.
