I am starting to fall in love with this name! When I am older I definitely want to name my child this. It’s so uncommon and beautiful! I pronounce it Mad-uh-lane-uh. I think Mad-uh-Len-a is so beautiful too though!

This name is beautiful, uncommon, and fresh. I love it! Don’t use Maddy as a nickname, because people will just assume your name is Madison instead of this breathtaking name. Use the name in full form, or use Lena, which is beautiful.

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.

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 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.
