Madison vs. for a vs. Boy

I had only ever heard Madison on a boy and I really like it, but I looked at its popularity for girls lately... I’m wondering if it is still acceptable on a boy.

The Top Baby Name is...



For A

madison is completely acceptable on aboy. it was originally a boy’s name as were many other now unisex names. it kind of makes more sense too considering ’son’ is in the name. i say go for it, and if anyone gives you a hard time, they are living in a popular andt rendy world.

Madison is Outrageously popular for girls in the USA. If you live here, I’d highly recommend finding another name for your son. Maddox would be a nice alternative.

Smile is right, it WAS first used on boys - but since it’s been taken over by the girls, I’d look for something else.

Madison is all girl IMO.

I live in Canada, it’s getting popular on girls here too. I’m just wondering if he would be teased a lot. As much as I love the name I don’t think I’d do it to my son if he’d go through torture having it :(

I know a guy named Matteson. He’s around 18-19 and goes by Matt. I love Madison on a boy but if you’re here in the US, I just don’t think it’ll work for you, unfortunately.

I like alexandramae’s suggestion of Matteson. That way the name is similar, but it is’nt really as girly. Though, I feel ya, i’m happy your looking out for your son :)

One of my best guy’s friends middle name is Madison. They picked on him a lot for it though.

100% a girl name now...I would not do it. There are plenty of more masculine names for a boy...people will call him a F A G.
