What is Momala?

In a letter to ELLE Magazine in celebration of Mother's Day Sen. Kamala Harris explains how her two stepchildren came up with Momala rather than Stepmom.

A few years later when Doug and I got married, Cole, Ella, and I agreed that we didn’t like the term “stepmom.” Instead, they came up with the name “Momala.”

It seems like anyone with a name ending in 'amala' could adopt the name that Sen Harris' stepchildren came up with for here. Disliking stepmom they chose Momala as their term of endearment.
