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.")
