Madeleine,
a WinBoard and UCI compatible chess engine by Luigi Marco Ripamonti, first released in October 2002 [1]. Madeleine is bitboard based, and uses a series of common search techniques such as negamax alpha-beta with transpostion table, null move pruning, quiescence search, killer heuristic, and history heuristic. Its evaluation uses a pawn hash table, further it can probe Nalimov Tablebases, and GAFS by Guido Antonelli (Guido Antonelli Finali di Scacchi) [2] [3].
Mary Magdalene [4]

Etymology

Madeleine and Madeline are forms of Magdalene, which is well known as a name because of Saint Mary Magdalene. Mary Magdalene's name is thought to be derived from Magdala – a village on the sea of Galilee. In Aramaic, "magdala" means "tower" or "elevated, great, magnificent".[5]
