Madeline is a variation of Magdalene which references the biblical Mary Magdalene. This sweetly old-fashioned name has been on the charts since the late 1800s and made a huge leap in popularity in the mid-1980s and continues to make its presence known on the name charts. Kids will also love the reference to the Madeline series of children’s books.
