I am impressed that you could decrypt the Enigma Especially the "Gretchenfrage" from Goethes Faust was a real mystery to me. I read it as mannigfaltiger (or similar) which of course make no sense and not at all as evangelischer.

Rounding off ...

Here's one more (last?) post, regarding Fräulein/Miss Cabanis (alt., from 1878; Frau/Mrs Reichenow), and the maria hybrid (dealt with in post #4-12). See:

Koch, A. 2018. Discovery of a rare hybrid specimen known as Maria’s bird of paradise at the Staatliches Naturhistorisches Museum in Braunschweig. Zoosystematics and Evolution 94 (2): 315-324 (here):
In 1894, Anton Reichenow (1847–1941), then ornithologist and deputy director of the Museum für Naturkunde (= Museum of Natural History) in Berlin, described another new species, P. maria, based on a single male specimen from the Finisterre Mountain Range of the Huon Peninsula in north–eastern New Guinea, dedicating the species epithet to his wife Maria ...
... with several nice Plates and Photos!

Though; if the name of Reichenow's wife (alt. Cabanis eldest Daughter), was Olympie Charlotte Marie (1856–1940), and such seems to be the case, wouldn't "Marie's Bird of Paradise" be a more proper denomination for this bird/hybrid?

Simply as maria seems to be nothing but the Latin/latinized version of her true given name.

However; enjoy!
