("MA-guh-lee") - I haven't encountered this name here in the States - that's my sister's name. We were born in France, and there are a few Magali's there! I think it sounds really good - very feminine name, not "too" strange, either!

Magali is possibly Provenšal or other dialectical form of Margaret. It could also be based on a Celtic name, formed from magalos meaning "prince." It was popular in France in the 1970s-1980s.
