Origin of Madrileño

First recorded in 1825–35; from Spanish madrileño, perhaps by dissimilation (d—d becoming d—l) from unrecorded madrideño, equivalent to Madrid Madrid + -eño a Spanish suffix forming nouns and adjectives from placenames (from Latin -ignus, -egnus, apparently extracted from adjectives formed with -n- in which g was part of the root, e.g., larignus “of larch,” salignus “of willow”)
