Where I live, it’s

[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] = Mad-uh-line
[name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] = Mad-uh-lyn
[name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] = Mad-uh-lenn
[name_f]Madelene[/name_f] = Mad-uh-leen.

I’ve also heard it pronounced mad-uh-layne

In the US (in my experience at least), it doesn’t matter how it’s spelled, it’s supposed to be said mad-uh-lyn.
