Meaning:Star of the sea; From Magdala
Marleni is a girl’s name with German, Latin, and Greek roots. As a variant of Marlene, it’s a play on Maria and Magdalene, and is easily a homage to one of the most fascinating biblical characters, Mary Magdalene. Of course, the 1920s actress Marlene Dietrich added the glamour quotient and the glitter factor. But combined with these two powerhouse figures are their beautiful meanings, “star of the sea” and “from Magdala.” Whether you’d like your little one to look to the stars or trust in their faith, pray tell, how can baby Marleni ever lose their way?
