Magdalena or Maddalena?

We like Magdalena for our DC due soon, but recently heard of the Italian Maddalena, which we also like. We're just not sure if it looks like a misspelling?

Which do you think is nicer?

Unless you have Italian roots I would stick to the former as to me it looks like a misspelling.

Lovely name though.

Unless you're Italian Maddalena just looks like predictive text gone crazy.

Magdalena for the same reason as above, for anyone unfamiliar with the other name it could look like a typo

Magdalena because Maggie is a really cute nickname.

Both nice but think I prefer Magdalena and also prefer Maggie to Maddie as a nn.
