Okay, this is kind of embarassing but my daughter's name is spelled exactly how it is pronounced:

M A D A L I N E, Madaline -- long I.

The embarassing part....We knew what we wanted her name to be, but hadn't worked out the spelling when I gave birth to her. When the hospital people came in and stood over us while filled out the forms, we were exhausted and just not thinking clearly, so we spelled it the way it sounded. It wasn't until later that I realized it was "wrong". I think she's probably not going to like me one day....

We call her by her full first name all the time, but we call her by her middle name every so often, it just fits sometimes.
