    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.


Marvel's official site says Lua's maiden name is Nguyen (probably a detail invented in a handbook entry). I wonder if that means Mantis's maternal uncle (the one who pimped her out) is named Kruuhl Nguyen or he's just her mother's half brother and Kruuhl's a last name. He went by Monsieur Kruuhl so Kruuhl's probably a last name right?
