Marlena

Like Malena, Marlena is a modern alternative to naming your daughter Magdalena. Stemming from the Biblical character of Mary Magdalene,  it gained unrelated attention because of WWII-era actress Marlene Dietrich. Different spelling, of course, but Marlena still carries the same grace, elegance and beauty as the screen legend.
