"My name is Magdalena. I am from
Serbia. When I was 6 years old, I didn't like my name, because it is so long. But now I love it so much. I mean, Magdalena is beautiful name, I love it so much, and I am so happy when I meet another girl called Magdalena. Did you know that name Magdalena comes from island Magdala. Cause Marie Magdalene was from Magdala, so Magdalena means "Girl from Magdala". And also thank you for this, I love my name so much!" May. 3, 2021:

"It's my first name. I used to hate it when I was little, because it was so unique (yes, crazy I know) and so long. But when I grew older and no one else ever had the same name as me I grew to love it. I was the only Magdalena in my school for years. It is pronounced Mag-da-lee-nuh" Aug. 17, 2012:

"I don't like any short forms of the name Magdalena, I like the name as it is. I know that when saying this name, there is an accent on the e. This is one of my favorite, unique Spanish female names. I like unique names like Candela, Lucera, Macrina, Maralina, etc. Magdalena is my very favorite." Aug. 7, 2010:
"I have lots of friends from Romania, Poland, and Italy with this name. It's a classic. What's there to dislike about it - it's pretty and not overused which gives it an exotic edge." Feb. 18, 2007:
"My name is Magdalena. Pronounced Mag da lena. It is often mispronounced and I have never met anyone else with the same name. I like my name because it is unusal and my Dad liked it. I am called Maggie most often. But I do like my name." May. 12, 2006:

"My grandson lives in Poland with his wife and their child. This little girl is called Magdalena. She is really sweet, I saw her only twice, but I can say it. But I find her name awful. I just don't like it, but it also bothers me, when they call her Magda. BRRRR! Awful! I know that it is a Polish diminutive, but I just hate it and think it really doesn't fit my grandgranddaughter. Magdalena isn't as bad as Magda, but also don't fit her. It too long name for little, short and thin girl." Nov. 2, 2015:

"Magdalena is my middle name and I love it, it's unique and has a nice ring to it. The only issue with it is that some people make the "e" a long e (ex: Magdaleena) which i don't think sounds as nice as with a short e." Nov. 3, 2010:
"Magdalena is my name! It's a beauty and I love it!" Oct. 12, 2006:
