What exacty are 'Allegra and Mary' eras?

Hey there,

is there any place to learn about these meaning of the two ‘codenames’ Allegra and Mary? They are part of changelogs for the cardano-node for two minor versions now, but I could not find any Information on them…

The latest changelog indicates that ‘Mary’ might refer to native assets… and Allegra?

Thanks in advance!
