Meaning:woman from Magdala
Marlena is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin. It translates to “woman from Magdala,” which was an ancient Jewish city on the shore of the Sea of Galilee and believed to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene. Marlena has a certain German flavor to it as well, possibly best attributed to the differently-spelt but oft-mispronounced Marlene Dietrich, the legendary German-born actress and singer. Marlena carries an air of old-world sophistication about it and can be used as a chic alternative to Mary or Marilyn.
