MySQL is an open-source relational database management system. Its name is a combination of “My”, the name of co-founder Michael Widenius’s daughter, and “SQL”, the abbreviation for Structured Query Language. In 2010, when Oracle acquired Sun, Widenius forked the open-source MySQL project to create MariaDB. Wikipedia
