Madeline is my pick - although it is more popular than Megan so there's that to consider if you don't want her to be one of a few Madeline's a school

No idea. It just looks heaps better than having line on the end of a name!

This!

I could not put my finger on what I thought but this is it

Madeline 100% and I usually like shorter names

added: I am presuming though it will be shortened to Maddie/Maddy whether you do it yourself or not?

Megan, don't like Maddy or Mad!

I know a Madeleine that is never ever referred to as a Mad or Maddy. It’s always her full name, she is very clear about it!

Megan.  

I like Madeleine and only spelt the French way.  I like it less nowadays because of the Maddie nickname and it is a bit of an effort using the full name all the time.

Megan, in full or nickname Meg has more personality for me.

Madeline is lovely. I would avoid Megan because of the Royals. It will always be mispronounced and spelled wrong.

Since you want Meghan (Meg-an), I vote Madeline.

Madeline just seems a prissy name to me.

I love the look and sound of Madeleine, but I really dislike the Maddy nickname.

I like Megan, but hate how Australians say it. Mee-gan is like nails down a chalk board for me. Meg-an or nothing.

So ultimately there is probably no winner for me in that list.

Madeline for me. My DD was Madeline - I adore that name.

Megan was the name of a bully at my school. She was just awful and that is probably why I dislike that name.
