IT HAS A REFENCE BACK TO MORIAH, THE MOUNTAIN WHERE GOD PROVED TO ABRAHAM THAT HIS FAITH WAS REAL IN THAT HE COUNTED HIS BELOVED SON OF PROMISE, ISSAC, AS DEAD FULLY EXPECTING TO SACRIFICE HIM ON GOD'S ALTAR, BUT THAT IS NOT THE SACRIFICE GOD WANTED OR WAS ASKING HIM TO DO, IT WAS ABRAHAM'S HEART GOD WANTED NOT HIS SON'S LIFE, SO GOD MADE HIS OWN SACRIFICE - THAT RAM WITH ITS HEAD CAUGHT IN THE THORN BUSH.

I DO NOT KNOW HOW COMMON IT IS ANYMORE, BUT "MOREY" WAS A POPULAR NAME IN THE JEWISH COMMUNITY SOME 4O OR SO YEARS BACK. THERE WAS A FAVORITE LATENIGHT TALK SHOW HOST WHO CARRIES THAT NAME, BUT I THINK HIS IS SPELLED DIFFERENTLY - "MOREY POVICH".

AS FAR AS MARIA OR ANY OF THE OTHER NORMALLY RECOGNIZED AS FEMALE NAMES BEING GIVEN TO MALES, COMMON CULTURAL PRACTICES WILL ASSIGN A MATRIARICAL NAME TO A BOY. IT IS A TRADITION OF HONOR, TO THE MOTHERS WHO MAY NOT BE SEEN OR RECOGNIZED, BECAUSE WE TRADITIONALLY HEAD OUR HOME'S LIFE AND LAW AS THE MASTER OF THE HOME. I THINK IT LOST IT'S VALUE AND PRACTICE WHEN THE SO CALLED WOMEN'S LIBERATION MOVEMENT AND BATTLE OF THE SEXES ROSE UP AND A MAN HAVING A WOMAN'S NAME IN HIS TITLE WAS MOCKED AND RIDDICULED. REMEMBER THAT SONG JOHNNY CASH SANG "A BOY NAMED SUE?" BUT IT IS NO SHAME OR DISGRACE
THE MAN KNOWN AS JOHN WAYNE, HIS REAL NAME WAS MARION.

FUNNY HOW FEEBLE AND FICKLE WE ARE ABOUT OUR NAMES.
