[mad-ruh-leyn-yoh; Spanish mah-th ree-le-nyaw]
- a native or inhabitant of Madrid, Spain.
Origin of Madrileño
1825–35; < Spanish madrileño, perhaps by dissimilation (d—d > d—l) from *madrideño, equivalent to Madrid Madrid + -eño suffix of appurtenance (< 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)
