With Super Mario Odyssey right around the corner, I thought I’d take a look at the background of the Mayor of New Donk City, Pauline! She is just as old as Mario, but really doesn’t have as much attention paid to her. With the new game, it might change. You know that Donkey Kong and Mario were both named after something, or someone, and have interesting stories behind how they were named. I’ve found some evidence that Pauline also was named after someone. Someone actually well known, at least for the olden days. Take a look and tell me what you think. Was Pauline named after a series of films, or am I just crazy?
