It is a very common Spanish name, too.

This name drives me crazy because of how popular it is. Especially in Spanish-speaking countries, it's very traditional to have Maria as either a first or second name. Maria Florencia. Maria Eugenia. Maria Camila. Maria Sofia. It's everywhere and most girls go by their middle names so it's less confusing, not that it helps.

María José de Pablo Fernández, better known as Coté de Pablo (born November 12, 1979), is a Chilean-American actress and plays "NCIS Federal Agent Ziva David" in the television series, NCIS. I would love to see Coté added to the namebanks here!
