Proper nounEdit

Madonna

  1. The Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus.
  2. A female given name from Italian.
    • 1835 Fraser's Magazine, Vol. XI, page 652 (June 1835):
      We feel bound to add, however, that it is not very likely, in the usual chances of events, that such names as Alaric Attila Watts should have met in matrimony with those of Zillah Madonna Wiffen; and an unkind world may suggest a mystification somewhere.
    • 2005 Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner, Freakonomics, Allen Lane (2005), →ISBN, page 184:
      But celebrities actually have a weak effect on baby names. As of 2000, the pop star Madonna had sold 130 million records worldwide but hadn't generated even the ten copycat namings―in California, no less―required to make the master index of four thousand names from which the sprawling list of girls' names on page 227 was drawn.
