    Magdalena was once very, very common in Afrikaner circles (I have a niece who has the same second name, but her first name is Maria). Now it is considered cumbersome and archaic, like maybe Jemima or Ernestine(?). Funny how things are different across cultures, and how they change!

    Forgot to add – Magdalena was almost always shortened to Magda.

    Definitely!

    I like names that are not super common if they are really names, and especially if they are family names.

    She is gorgeous!

    Kinda looks like grandpa!
