I'm entering this conversation rather late, but Mary might not have been all that
distant >from the original name. I have several Hungarian relatives with the given
names of Mari and Maria (written as such in Hungarian records). Maria was known as
Marie in the U.S. It's not much of a leap >from Mari to Mary.
