  • "In the past, biographers and others stated that Madison's real name was Dorothea after her Aunt, or Dorothy and Dolly was a nickname. However, the registry of her birth with the New Garden Friends Meeting lists her name as Dolley and her will of 1841 states "I, Dolly P. Madison". Based on manuscript evidence and the scholarship of her recent biographers, Dollie, spelled with an "i", appears to have been her given name at birth." --Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dolley_Madison&oldid=473161845)
