Any All Exact

Oh a rose by any other name would be as bitter and prickly.

I was just looking up the various names of the Spartans in anticipation of Oynx coming out soon when I entered in Maria's and thought it particularly relevant to the character (taken form 'The meaning is not known for certain, but there are several theories including "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child".'
If that doesn't describe Maria, I don't know what does.

Now, by "wished for child", I automatically thought of it as the "wished for child", as in, wanted by her parents. It could be read as 'wanting a child', which is supposedly Maria's reason for getting out. I'm not convinced myself, what about you?
