Neutral Point of View
According to Wiki NPOV guidelines, articles should not have personal opinion or bias or unsubstantiated statements (such as how a female named Madison's name should be spelled). If people keep changing this, would someone please protect this page? InkQuill 02:22, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Questioning Article's Origin of Name Info
My last name is Maddison and I am originally from Northern England. I did not update the article because I am unable to site reference articles. As I understand it, however, the roots of the name are related to a old profession called a "madder". Apparently a madder was associated with the care of horses.18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:28, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Popularity from 1985 due to Splash?
- From a practically non-existent girl's name before 1985, Madison rose to being the second-most-popular name given to female babies in 2001.
Was this primarily because of the success of the film Splash? That article seems to say so.
