Maria (pronounced "Ma-rie-a") is the name of a character in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. As was often the case with variants of names in Shakespeare's day (and before and for sometime afterwards), this was evidently regarded as interchangeable with Mary. (At one point, Maria says, "My name is Mary, sir.")

Maria Gaetana Agnesi (1718-99), was an Italian linguist, mathematician, and philosopher. Agnesi is credited with writing the first book discussing both differential and integral calculus. Maria could speak both French and Italian at the age of 5. By age 13, she had acquired Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, German, Latin. At age 9, she composed and delivered, in Latin, women's right to be educated, an hour-long speech to an academic gathering. At age 15, her father Pietro, a mathematics professor, regularly gathered a circle of the most learned men in Bologna, before whom she read and maintained a series of theses on the most abstruse philosophical questions. By age 20, it is said she had a strong desire to enter a convent. Her wish was not granted and she lived from that time on in an almost conventual semi-retirement, avoiding all interactions with society and devoting herself entirely to the study of mathematics.
