Report inappropriate content Comments and insights on the name Madison: Edit I'm 27, growing up, hardly anyone had the name Madison, I went to a school with kids and only one other Madison who was a grade below me. Another girl went by Madison but that was her middle name. I think it's VERY overused now and wasn't that common as a boys name in years past.
Here are some names that I have been asked to translate. These are not technically translatable into Irish, but sometimes you can create modern versions of names. Sometimes it's just impossible to find a name that matches. Foreign names got translated into Irish when they were brought to Ireland by foreigners, namely, Vikings, Norman and English settlers, and Missionaries. Many translatable names are biblical, such as John, James, etc.

Greek Names in English Routes: A good number of English first names that are still familiar come from the Greek, and appear in their original form in LGPN. But since there is no direct historical continuity between Greek and English naming, there is always an intermediate stage, most commonly associated with Christianity: Greek names borne by apostles, martyrs and saints often in Latinized form were perpetuated through their cults. Any name used in a positive context in the New Testament was liable to be taken up.
