Something vs. Like vs. Madeline

I’ve recently fallen in love with the name Madeline but my husband has vetoed it. He went to school with many Madeline/Madelyn/Madeleine’s and we used to have a mutual friend named Madeline (Maddie) and he says that he can’t get past the not-so-great associations. I can respect his feelings however I just can’t seem to find anything else I love nearly as much! Can you give a few suggestions I can share with my husband that I may like based on Madeline? I just feel as though it’s elegant and classy and girly but not too frilly. Thanks for your help! ~Shanna

It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
