M is for MARIA

M (2)

As you may  know my name is MARIA CATALINA  and I love both , I usually go  by my middle name but Maria is one I love as well.

Do you like your given name? If not would you change it?

MARIA The meaning of the Semitic-rooted name is uncertain, but it may originally be an Egyptian name, probably derived from mry “beloved” or mr “love” (“eminent lady” or “beloved lady”). The meaning of the Latin-rooted name is similarly ambiguous, possibly deriving from mare (“sea” in Latin), maris (“male”), or the name of the god Mars.
