Origin of the name MADONNA.
Etymology of the name MADONNA.
Meaning of the baby name MADONNA.

  

MADONNA.  From the Italian word Madonna, meaning "My Lady." 
    Madonna, an American actress, recording artist and entrepreneur. (Wiki)

    In early days an Italian in addressing a lady used the word Madonna, which, like the French word Madame, means My Lady.  Now he says Signora; Madonna would have to him an old-fashioned sound.  To the rest of the world this word Madonna has come to be applied almost wholly to the Virgin Mary, with or without the child Jesus; and as Raphael painted a great many pictures of the Madonna for churches or other sacred places, a name has been given to each, drawn usually from some circumstance about it. (Raphael: a Collection of Fifteen Pictures and a Portrait of the Painter, Hurll, 1899).
