Think Maribel, Isabella, or Luisa from the hit movie Encanto. (But…we don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no.)

Old Disney movies offer names like Aurora, Jasmine, Belle, Alice, Jane, and Tiana. Newer movies include some of our favorite characters like Moana, Anna, Kiara, and Elsa.

For example, you might do Madeline Rose or Madeline Jade. You could also do a longer double name such as Madeline Elizabeth, which sounds elegant and timeless. Double names are popular in the southern United States and have a way of sticking around!


Syllable Balance

Madeline middle name

Since Madeline is a three-syllable name, either a short or long middle name can work well. Of course, this depends on your last name.

Most memorable names are between four to six syllables. Anything longer than that can sometimes be challenging to commit to memory (but, of course, that’s not a hard and fast rule).

So when you are considering the best middle name for Madeline, consider how many syllables her entire name will be, as well as how it all flows together. Does it sound better to have a short middle name or a long one?

Both of my boys have a 1:2:1 syllable ratio for their names. My name is 3:2:1, and while it’s not the most original and exciting name (Jennifer was an entirely common name in the 80s!), it does flow with my middle and last name. 

One syllable middle names:

  • Madeline Anne
  • Madeline Bree
  • Madeline Eve
  • Madeline Mae
  • Madeline Paige
  • Madeline Wren


Put simply, cadence is the flow or rhythm of sounds or words. It is generally a musical term and refers to that special quality that makes notes sound good together.

The question is: how do we create cadence with our names? Is there a way to make them sound almost lyrical?

Syllable balance is one way to create cadence, but there are other elements too, such as alliteration. Saying your daughter’s name aloud is a great way to test for cadence, or flow.

Consider the middle names you’ve chosen for Madeline. How do they sound with your last name? Do all names flow well together? 



There are some cute nicknames for Madeline like Maddy, Madz, Maddie, Lynn, and Del. You could also combine her first and middle name initials to create nicknames like MJ – Madeline Joy , Madeline June or Madeline Jade!

MZ – Madeline Zoey or Madeline Zora. MM – Madeline Mae or Madeline Marie
