[name]Magda[/name]: I’m not fond of it. Sounds too harsh and clunky to me.
A name similar to it would be [name]Ingrid[/name], which has a softer sound. Other similar names: [name]Augusta[/name], [name]Agnes[/name], [name]Martha[/name], [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Ada[/name], [name]Ida[/name].

[name]Magdalene[/name] is nice, but I prefer [name]Magdalene[/name]. Similar names: [name]Evangeline[/name]. [name]Josephine[/name]. [name]Angeline[/name], [name]Emmeline[/name], [name]Rosaline[/name], [name]Rosalind[/name].

I prefer [name]Magdalena[/name] because it flows so nicely.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name] and [name]Magdalena[/name]! Not a fan of [name]Magda[/name] at all. As for middle names, I think you need something short and simple, since [name]Magdalene[/name]/[name]Magdalena[/name] is a lot of name. Something along the lines of [name]Magdalene[/name] [name]Kate[/name], [name]Magdalene[/name] [name]Ruby[/name], etc.

I always assumed that [name]Magda[/name] was a nn for someone named [name]Magdalene[/name]/[name]Magdalena[/name]. I’m not a fan of these names, they sound very very Catholic to me -so it wouldn’t work unless you are very devout. I prefer Magalie which I’ve heard is a variation on [name]Magdalene[/name] but name sites seem to link to [name]Margaret[/name]. I also really like [name]Madeline[/name] and all its variations: [name]Madelaine[/name], [name]Madelyn[/name] etc which are apparently derived from [name]Magdalene[/name].


[name]Magda[/name] sounds like someone mispronouncing the word “magma.”

[name]Magdalene[/name] has never been a favorite of mine, but I prefer it to [name]Magdalena[/name]. I honestly do nor care for any of the choices, but [name]Magdalene[/name] has a more elegant sound than [name]Magdalena[/name] in my opinion.

I think [name]Evangeline[/name] or [name]Madeleine[/name] are a good suggestion which have a similar feel.

I love [name]Magda[/name], but only as a nn for [name]Magdalena[/name].

I don’t really like [name]Magda[/name] by itself, but I really like [name]Magdalene[/name] and I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Magdalena[/name].

I have a hard time coming up with combos where [name]Magdalene[/name] is the first name. It works better in the middle [name]IMO[/name].

I love both [name]Magda[/name] and [name]Magdalena[/name]! [name]Magda[/name] got my vote, though. They are both so rich and full of history, and I love the European feel to them, as well. I once read a story about a girl called [name]Magda[/name], and even though it feels frumpy and old to a lot of people, I think it’s great–it feels very modern and striking, maybe even a bit demure, to me. At one point, both were on my list. [name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Elise[/name] was my [name]Magdalena[/name] combo–I don’t think I honestly ever found a [name]Magda[/name] combo I liked, but I remember tossing around [name]Magda[/name] [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Kate[/name]/[name]Jane[/name].

Good luck!

I voted for [name]Magdalena[/name]. It’s the prettiest one:) Used to be on my long list before.

I love [name]Magda[/name], the others are ok…for me would just serve as a way to get to [name]Magda[/name]!

I love [name]Marla[/name], [name]Marlene[/name], [name]Margot[/name], [name]Marjorie[/name]. Kind of clunky, cool & sexy imo.

[name]Magda[/name] & [name]Marla[/name] & [name]Margot[/name] are my favorite. Shorter with more pop.

I don’t know how do you pn [name]Magdalena[/name], but I pn it like mah-g-dah-leh-nah g like g in game. If you pn other names simmilar, my fave is magdalena.

I wish I had the guts to use [name]Magdalena[/name], and the husband who would be willing. I love the old Catholic names (and I’m not Catholic), but DH doesn’t. I like [name]Magda[/name] as a nickname for [name]Magdalena[/name] or [name]Magdalene[/name]. So cool!

[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Sol[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Paz[/name]
(maybe something short and sweet like that for a middle name, depending on your last name).

I love them all! I voted for [name]Magdalene[/name] because you can still use [name]Magda[/name] as a nickname, and it is less of a mouthful than [name]Magdalena[/name]. But my favorite of all the versions is [name]Madeleine[/name], the softer French spelling.

I really like [name]Magdalena[/name]. My father had a great aunt with this name and she went by [name]Lena[/name]. I like that nn or [name]Leni[/name], [name]Elena[/name], or even [name]Maggie[/name] or [name]Meg[/name]. I think something simple works as a mn. Maybe one of the following:

[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Tess[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Clare[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Joan[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Joy[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Fern[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Celeste[/name]

[name]Magdalena[/name] is my favorite. I just love how it looks and sounds. I like it paired with a one-syllable middle name.

Thankyou so much Berries!!

You guys are great!!

What about [name]Magdalene[/name]/[name]Magdalena[/name] in the middle??


[name]Magda[/name] is the only version I don’t like, it’s abbreviated and therefore only feels like a nickname for the other two. Out of the other two I prefer [name]Magdalena[/name] but both are so pretty!
