The MIA Maids name origin

I'm in Sacrament meeting and all of a sudden, an organization name I've heard about for decades catches my interest ....


"Mia Maid," a young women's program for ages 14 and 15.

Could this have reference to the old Mutual Improvement Association name?
Turns out it does:

"The name Mia Maid refers historically to the Mutual Improvement Association, which adopted the emblem of the rose as a symbol of love, faith, and purity. Mia Maids today learn about love, faith, and purity as they strengthen their testimony and accept and act upon the Young Women values," according to  LDS.org
