I have only fallen for this name recently, but it keeps popping back into my head when I least expect it (in a good way!) Can the biblical reference be overcome? And is it too similar to Marguerite (another favourite, but has been for a long time)? If so, which do you prefer and why? What middle names would work best with it?
Sorry for the question overload...! Thanks in advance.

I adore Magdalena.
It was one of my favorites for years and yes, I do think the Biblical reference can be overcome. I love that it has such a range of nicknames, Magda (which I love, but for a lot of people it's too Miranda's housekeeper on SATC), Lena, Maggie, etc..
Magdalena and Marguerite are a little too close for sisters in my opinion, I prefer Magdalena.
Magdalena Blythe (short and feminine)
Magdalena Belle (ditto)
Magdalena Jane (love the repeated vowel actually)
Magdalena Quinn (for more of a balanced feel)
