Maddox for a girl?

Hey name nerds! Recently I stumbled across the name [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] used for a girl and while I’d heard the name before, I’d never pictured it for a little girl. But it’s cute!

Yes it’s a traditionally masculine name but, so is [name_f]Madison[/name_f] and that is way more widely used for girls now. I think it has a lot of cute nickname potential- [name_f]Maddy[/name_f], [name_f]Moxie[/name_f], [name_m]Max[/name_m], etc. Maybe MJ if you pair it with a J middle name.

And personally I like [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] :woman_shrugging:t2:

So what do you think of the name [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] for a girl? And what middle name would you pair it with?

[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] on a girl isn’t my personal favorite, but I can see it being cute! I definitely love all the nicknames – [name_f]Maddy[/name_f], [name_f]Moxie[/name_f] and [name_m]Max[/name_m], as you said, and I also enjoy [name_m]Doc[/name_m], Doxie, [name_m]Mads[/name_m], and [name_m]Mac[/name_m]!
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is pretty! A few middle name suggestions…
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] (this one is my favorite!)
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Araminta[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Cassandra[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]

I really like it!! a lot of cool nicknames is just all around a cool name. like @daisydarcy said, [name_m]Doc[/name_m], Doxie, [name_m]Mads[/name_m] and [name_m]Mac[/name_m] would make cute nicknames. I also have to add [name_m]Mackie[/name_m]

[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is really cool.

personally I would go with [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Iona[/name_f] or [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Isla[/name_f]

I could see it working with [name_f]Maddie[/name_f].

But I would avoid Doxie, as it means “floozy, prostitute, mistress, hussy, tramp, wench…”

I actually really love [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] for a girl! She’s just so far off from my normal favorites that it’s hard to include her…

I love [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]! She has very strong and sporty vibes to me!


I love all the nicknames that have been suggested! I’ll also add [name_f]Ada[/name_f] and [name_f]Addy[/name_f] for more of a feminine vibe.

Some middle suggestions:

[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Joy[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Marie[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Belle[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Hope[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Faye[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]

I quite like it - pretty cool and breezy!

I’d like: [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f], [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Juniper[/name_f] and [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Leonie[/name_f]

I actually quite like the idea of [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] on a girl! it’s undeniably cool, a bit rugged, and has sounds familiar to other leaning-fem names like [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] and [name_f]Madison[/name_f].

however, I really dislike the combination [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] — for me, it’s too much X and D, and just sounds very heavy and clunky. [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] has the ability to sound quite harsh, and [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] just highlights everything harsh about it. while [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is a beautiful feminine name, it brings out the masculine qualities of [name_m]Maddox[/name_m].

personally, I would lean more towards something like this with Maddox…
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]June[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Luella[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] [name_f]Eve[/name_f]

I don’t like [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] for a girl, it’s too harsh to me. I prefer [name_f]Madison[/name_f] or [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] or even just [name_f]Maddie[/name_f].
