It either means "declaring God" or "chosen fruit of God" in Hebrew. I think -iel names are cool for either sex and plus it can have the nickname Maggie, which I think is very cute!

In the Old Testament, Magdiel is the name of an Edemite clan, as well as the name of its chieftain. In modern times, Magdiel is an agricultural community founded in Israel (then Palestine) in the 1920s.
