I have a friend named Madalena. She is neither Portugese or from a Portugese family. Her name was chosen because her parents disagreed on whether it should be Madeline or Elena, and came to a compromise at Madalena. I also know somebody else named Madaleina, pronounced the same way.

This is my name, and I never knew it was Portuguese! I prefer it to Magdalena, although I do like similar names (like Madeleine).

I named my daughter Madalena after my aunt. Typically the Italian version has two d's but my aunt's only had one. Although my aunt usually went by Madeline. It is a beautiful name.
