Reply to: my name....my background...it connects right? by maura
If you bothered to search the Behind the Name database first, you would've seen the following:

MAURA (1) f Italian, Spanish
Feminine form of MAURUS.

MAURA (2) f Scottish, Irish, English
Pronounced: MOR-a
Possibly from Gaelic mór meaning "great". This was the name of an obscure 5th-century Irish or Scottish martyr. This name is also used as an Anglicized form of MÁIRE (MAIRE).

Click the links provided to find out the meanings of Maurus / Maire. As you can see, Maura as derived from the second root is indeed an Irish form of Mary.

Sorry if I seemed harsh, I'm just getting very impatient with people who don't see the search box.
