From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a surname derived from Magdala, the place of her nativity, given
    to one of the Marys of the Gospels to distinguish her from the
    other Marys (Matt. 27:56, 61; 28:1, etc.). A mistaken notion has
    prevailed that this Mary was a woman of bad character, that she
    was the woman who is emphatically called "a sinner" (Luke
    7:36-50). (See MARY.)

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Magdalene, a person from Magdala
