The meaning of "Maganda"

In the Filipino language, the word maganda is defined as “beautiful”. The Filipino’s use this word to describe something or someone beautiful. However, the word is usually used by men to describe ladies. Men say maganda when they see a lady that is attractive, but maganda is really meant to describe the lady’s heart. If the lady is sweet, kind, and thoughtful, she is maganda. So, maganda is a word to describe “beauty” not only in objects, but also to someone’s looks and most importantly, our soul.

In Turkish slang, "Maganda" means "a man who has rude, ill-mannered, ill- behaved, brutish and pumpkin behaviors."

Dear Gentleman,

You had better change your last name. ;)
Because, if I were in place of you, I would do it as soon as possible; :)
And look for more handsome name. (unlike "maganda"):D
