Malin is a feminine name of Scandinavian, Hebrew, and Irish origin. A parent seeking a powerful name for their special baby will love the robust symbolism Malin holds. In Scandinavian culture, Malin is a diminutive of Magdalene and means "of Magdala." In turn, the Hebrew Magdala gives this name the meanings “elegant,” “great,” and “tower.” If you wish to raise baby in faith, Malin has strong but subtle connections to the Jewish Talmud and Christian New Testament. Malin also has links to the Irish surname Ó Meallain, providing your little one with another meaning, “pleasant.”
