Random information on the term “MAB”:
Queen Mab is a fairy referred to in William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, where “she is the fairies’ midwife.” Later, she appears in other poetry and literature, and in various guises in drama and cinema. In the play, her activity is described in a famous speech by Mercutio written originally in prose and often adapted into iambic pentameter, in which she is described as a miniature creature who performs midnight pranks upon sleepers. Being driven by a team of atomies, she rides her chariot over their noses and “delivers the fancies of sleeping men.” She is also described as a midwife to help sleepers “give birth” to their dreams. She may be a figure borrowed from folklore, and though she is often associated with the Irish Medb in popular culture, and has been suggested by historian Thomas Keightley to be from Habundia, a more likely origin for her name would be from Mabel and the Middle English derivative “Mabily” (as used by Chaucer) all from the Latin amabilis (“lovable”).
