Madeleine- Mad-uh-lenne not Mad-uh-line

There is a teacher at the kids' school who calls Madeleine "Madi" (okay, fine) or "Madeline" as in 'line' that rhymes with pine. The kicker is that she is the speech teacher! What's up? I get it, I named my kid a name that is common but I put a spin on the spelling. For those of you who don't know or didn't notice it is the French way of spelling Madeline.

Do you know of a child named "Mad-uh-line"? No, you know of a book that should be Madeleine but the English translation butchered it to being mispronounced.

Okay. I'm done. I just had to write about that.

Thank you.
