- after my husbands 85 yr old grandmother (to the kids growing up it was Grandlady, not grandmother)
- It was alluded to in the Bible that Mary of Magdalene was a prostitute, and yet she was a woman of character. Jesus accepted her when no one else did, because he saw that despite her 'sin', she was a strong, loyal, and loving woman. I think this name encourages us to remember not to judge people based on surface facts and appearances, but on the quality of their soul, just as Jesus did. Nickname could be Maggie or Lena.
