Meaning:Woman from Magdala; Tower
Picture your little one as a tiny explorer with the name Magdala, deeply rooted in biblical and bygone realms. Like the ancient Jewish city on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, Magdala signifies a place of origin, weaving history into your child's story. The Babylonian Talmud calls it Magdala Nunayya, meaning "Tower of the Fishes," possibly associated with processing fish. Embrace the charm of this name, believed to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene, a fellow "woman from Magdala," and let it be a "tower" of strength for your beloved child.
