Neutral Point of View[edit]

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)

Second most popular[edit]

Er...usually when people mention "second most", other people want to know what's the first. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:35, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Questioning Article's Origin of Name Info[edit]

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. (talk) 17:28, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Popularity from 1985 due to Splash?[edit]

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.

That may be so, but Wikipedia is not a source for Wikipedia. We'd need a reliable secondary source to support any such assertion. Otherwise it's just speculation and not encyclopedic. J. D. Crutchfield | Talk 17:15, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
