Meaning:Woman from Magdala
A feminine name with Hebrew and German origins, Marline has a rather literal meaning of "woman from Magdala." Magdala was an ancient Jewish city on the Sea of Galilee and believed to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene. Until the 1948 Arab-Isreal War, the town was a small arab village named al-Majdal, now an Israeli municipality called Migdal. From German, Marline has a secondary meaning of "little girl," which has the rare distinction of being both literally and figuratively true. Your small bundle of joy will one day grow up but will always remain your "little" one.
