True story. When I was about to release MaGog, I looked for an image to use as a decoration for the home page. In my mind's eye, I imagined an old woman sitting in a rocking chair, knitting, something like "Ma Dalton", based on exactly the same pun. At the end, I decided to go for the plain, undecorated look, but I kept the uncoventional capitalisation "MaGog" as a reference to that old Ma.
Conrad57: I called her a She because I was playing the other side of the pun. MaGog may have come from "Gog and MaGog" from the bible. However, I wanted to play it as "Ma Gog," like Ma and Pa, going with GOG (not Gog). :) That's why I said she. However, her creator has confirmed her she-ness. :P
