Malin does not mean trustworthy in Swedish! It doesn't mean anything in Swedish, it's just a variant of Magdalena. It's pronounced MAH-linn.

Malin does mean "trofast, trogen." And most like every name, all of them have their own meanings. Ok, it's true that Malin is a Swedish version of "Magdalena" but that's just the history. But it means "true, faithful."

Yet another name popularized through an Astrid Lindgren story. It got trendy in Sweden after the films about "Saltkråkan" were first shown on TV. Malin was the very lovable oldest sister in the family who came to visit the island out in the archipelago.

As a bearer of this name I have to also inform that this name is also very common in the Swedish speaking Finns community which contains about 6% of the Finnish population and is recognized as a minority in Finland. Swedish is therefore the second national language in Finland, and therefor I think people should know that Malin is also a common name in Finland, it has variations in the Finnish speaking population and it´s most commonly written Maalin.

I didn't know this was a female name pronounced MAH-lin. I live in the US, and my great-grandfather's name was Malin, pronounced MAL-in. I also read a thriller as a child, I think it was "Riptide" by Lincoln & Childe, starring a man named Malin. I've always been rather partial to that name for a boy.
