The Trendsetter

The Hebrew name Maialen, is a variation of Magdalene. Magdalene means ‘From Magdala’ the town, and Magdala means ‘Tower’.

It can be pronounced as either m-EYE-ah-len or MAY-ah-len, and I honestly can’t choose which I prefer better. I am partial to variant spelling of Maialin, and also Mayalynn. So many cute options for spelling.

Maialen could easily be shortened to Maia, sounding youthful and fresh, and not unlike Reya or Leia. But it also reminds me of similar names Magdalena, Madelaine and Margaretta.
