Does Mrs. Claus Have A Life Of Her Own?

Here's a question for the festive season: What is the first name of Santa Claus' wife? Trick question. Not only does Mrs. Claus have no definitive first name, her identity is so tied up in that of her husband that she is best known for elf-wrangling, cookie baking, and assisting with toy assembly.

Since she first emerged in the mid-19th century, Mrs. Claus has been a secondary character living in the shadow of her famous, workaholic husband. But along the way there have been glimmers of who she is as an independent person and even a few suggestions for what her name could be.
