    Pronunciation and Spelling Preferences!

    Hi Berries! I am in love with a set of names, and want to know what the community thinks/prefers and why, if you're willing to explain...

    Magdalen

    Magdalene

    Magdalena

    The first two I would pronounce mag-dah-lehn, but I worry about people mishearing "Madelyn." The last version I'm not sure how to pronounce...mag-dah-leh-nah? Or mag-dah-lay-nah? I prefer the first pronunciation for the nickname "Lena," but the second feels more natural to me for some reason...

    I'm not expecting, just interested in these names/opinions! Thanks (:

    I think I would pronounce the later as mag-da-leen-a. I prefer Magdalene, which I would pronounce as mag-da-leen. All three are lovely.
