Re: How do you feel about...

  • I think it's cute.  I used to be a teacher and I had a student with that name that was smart, sweet, and all around adorable.  So... positive association.  The girl I knew went by her full name, but I think Lena would be a really cute nickname for Magdalena.

  • I don't like it at all. Something about the g and d is just not appealing to me.


  • I don't love it, but don't hate it. The one I knew went by Maggie.
  • It's beautiful. I would pair it with a single syllable middle name, though.

    I agree with all of this. Magdalena is not bad, but it's such a BIG name compared to Samuel. I like Magnolia and Margaret more.

  • I agree that the gd combo doesn't appeal to me, and it just doesn't seem to fit with Samuel. I love Elena, or Lena is nice. Also like pp suggestion of Margaret.

  • I think Samuel and Magdelena would be just fine as a sibset. I only think it's odd when siblings have names that are very similar in sound or spelling, or rhyme.

    Samuel and Magdalena sound fine together. Sam and Maggie is cute too. DD2  MN is Magdalene so I love it even more. I work in a nursing home and have a Magdalena and she has quite the interesting life. It is a nice change from Margaret.

  • I'm not a fan. I'm not religious at all, and i don't know if you are, but Mary Magdalene is a somewhat controversial figure in the Bible. Some people believe she was a prostitute, others that she was Jesus' partner, and she was supposedly the first person to have said to have seen Jesus after his crucifixion. The prostitute part is what bothers me the most, I wouldn't want to name my daughter after that. Even if it isn't true, it is the reputation she holds for many people.

  • One of my friends daughter's name is Magedelena. They call her Maggie for short. Little sister is Olive. Too cute!
  • I love it but crossed it off my own list due to the prostitute connection. Mary Magdalene is namesake worthy, but I do worry that many people will hear the name and subconsciously think "prostitute" first before thinking about the rest of her story.
