    Hmm...well, her father's last name was Brandt. Maybe he named 'Mantis' after her mother/his wife in honor of her memory. Lau was her mother's name. Lau Brandt? At some point she was renamed by the Priests of Pama though.


According to

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantis_(Marvel_Comics)

Mandy Celestine was the name Mantis took when she lived in Willimantic, CT, for a year after giving birth to Sequoia (aka Quoi). I would guess the name "Mandy" puns on "Mantis" while "Celestine" alludes to her status as the Celestial Madonna
