While your information about some of the countries where the name Magda is used is correct, you could provide more detailed information, such as: Magda is originally a Palestinian name. Think of Mary Magdalen in Palestine 2,000 years ago, which pre-dates the countries you ascribed its usage to. Magda means "glorious one" in Arabic, which is much like the name "Gloria" in English. Magda remains a very common name in Arabic countries. It also is known in many forms in countries where the Bible has traveled.
