Why Has The Goddess Been Named as Maa Mahagauri?

Being pleased with her deep devotion, Lord Shiva sprinkled Gangajal on her body and owing to which, she turned Gaur Varna (orange) and hence, she was named as Maa Mahagauri. She is worshiped on Durgashtami and blesses devotees with the fulfillment of all hearty desires.
