What’s in a Name?

I appreciated Jason Wilde’s article on naming your child Madison [“Naming Rights,” Fall 2013]. My husband [Jeffrey Leverich ’83, MA’89, MA’97, PhD’04] and I are both UW–Madison alumni and named our daughter Madison in 1985, and his roommate from college followed our lead in 1986. It is a wonderful name, and all the children I have met named Madison are strong, intelligent, creative, and mindful individuals — is it the name or the parents behind the naming?
