Sorry OP. Darcy is a really unfortunate name for a girl IMO. There is a girl in my sons swimming class called Darcy and every time I hear it I cringe.
Madeline is lovely though.

I like it, but I don't mind Darcy for a girl (it is on both lists for me)

Madeleine is lovely, I'm also not a fan ofDarcy for a girl sorry.

I like the name Darcy. I taught the most beautiful natured little girl with the name.

I really dislike both names, sorry. If anything I prefer Darcy to Madeline as I really dislike the Maddie / Mattie set of NNs.

Darcy is lovely for a boy and Madeline lovely for a girl

I like both names, but I don't think they go together. They are two completely different "styles" of names IYKWIM.

Love Madeline but not so keen on Darcy. But I prefer Darcy for a girl than a boy.

Darcy is the one name I really don't like on a boy or a girl sorry .
Madeline is pretty and I like that .

Love the name Darcy. It's my gorgeous little granddaughters name.

Madeleine Darcy would be fine. I love Darcy for a boy but for me too it is a cringe for a girl as the first and known-by given name. Sorry.
Madeleine NN Leni/Lenny gives you classic and cool however.

Like it. Though, my preference would be for a shorter middle name. Darcy has a soft sound and plenty of spunk in my opinion, so suitable for a girl.

I think Darcy/Darcie is fine for a girl - the name Darcy Madeline seems quite nice to me.

Darcy sounds terrible in an Australian accent, I just checked on A Tiny Hedgehog and trees outside died and my hair went grey.

Sorry, I really dislike Darcy. I do however like Aubrey, if that's something you would consider.

I love the name Darcy, although for a girl maybe spell it Darcey like the British ballerina. Its a very pretty name and I would envisage a girl with a lovely free spirit.
Madeline I also like but only pronounced mad a line not mad a lynne!
Choose Darcy, its beautiful.
