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.
