Meaning:Woman from Magdala
As an alternative form of Madeline, there's a certain amount of whimsy to Madelena. This Hebrew girl's name means "woman from Magdala." Magdala was a town of the Sea of Galilee in Israel, and the home of Christian Saint Mary Magdalen, who was healed by Jesus Christ and was present at his crucifixion. With Madelena, you're able to share a link to your faith with baby, while still having the charm of Madeleine and Elena.
