The virgin goddess of Mylapore

I couldn't stop thinking why people should study their mother tongue well.
Do we take it for granted that we all are pundits of our own language?
When the name of the school is flawlessly translated into Tamil, why can't the street name be?

Mundaka kanni amman (the goddess with eyes like lotus petals) becomes one that sounds like virgin Mary in this name board!
