- Comments and insights on the name Mada
First off, it's pronounced "May-da". Everyone gets that wrong, and I'm alway correcting them. It's a very pretty name I've been told, and it does make people stop and look at it, especially when it's said aloud.
- Personal experiences with the name Mada
I've met only one other person with this name when I was... maybe five? And I've heard of one other person through a friend. It's always made me stand out just a bit from everyone. My mother named me after my great-great grandmother, so this name means a lot to me.
My great-great-aunt's name was Mada G. (she's from Texas, and everyone in Texas has odd nicknames). My dad thinks it might have been short for Madeline and a middle name that stared with G, but he's not sure. Madeline is my middle name now, and I might go by Mada for short.

I've heard that this name is a variant of Madeline or Magdalene, or meaning woman from Magda. I've also heard of an Arabic name with the same spelling. It's hard to tell exactly where this name came from, but I believe it's from Ireland.
