Etymology Not known. However, Magelona (feminine) is a 1535 German spelling of the name of a princess (beautiful Magelone, daughter of the King of Naples) who appears in the prose and verse tale "Liebesgeschichte der schönen Magelone und des Grafen Peter von Provence" (Love-Story of the Beautiful Magelone and Count Peter of Provence). it relates a German version of an anonymous tale originally in the Occitan language (of S. France, Italy, Spain) dating back to at least the 13th century. Thus it is likely that Magelona was a name in some use as a German girl's name in the 1850s when Müller adopted it as a genus, or was otherwise known to Müller through encountering the folk-tale. The tale (in German) is available at Gutenberg org  [details]

Etymology Not known. However, Magelona (feminine) is a 1535 German spelling of the name of a princess (beautiful Magelone, daughter of the King of Naples) who appears in the prose and verse tale "Liebesgeschichte der schönen Magelone und des Grafen Peter von Provence" (Love-Story of the Beautiful Magelone and Count Peter of Provence). it relates a German version of an anonymous tale originally in the Occitan language (of S. France, Italy, Spain) dating back to at least the 13th century. Thus it is likely that Magelona was a name in some use as a German girl's name in the 1850s when Müller adopted it as a genus, or was otherwise known to Müller through encountering the folk-tale. The tale (in German) is available at Gutenberg org  [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine. All the adjectival Magelona species-group names have feminine endings. Magelona is an obscure woman's name known in Germany from the late mediaeval period (see etymology). [details]
