Not really. It's just wordplay MaRia - MaFia. It seemed to go well, and have a lot of possibilities for interesting titles. And anyway a Mafia can just be any group of people united in determined support of a single purpose. (Such as the Tony Blair mafia). We never usually condone criminality.
We could have had "Maria's Marines" but that name had already been used by Testud supporters.
