Whose mother's maiden name? Yours or mine? Can you, please, ask questions properly? Or, can the administrator remove this one? Probably Deborah pressed Enter by mistake before she had completed her question. And since you have her email address, you can notify her that she should re-enter her question correctly. As it is, the Bible does not speak of maiden names because there were no surnames. People were known as "the son/daughter of XXX". This formula applied even after marriage though informally a woman could be identified as "the wife of YYY".
