Names like "Golden Sequence" and "Mary's Dowry"?

We hear so many colloquial names & titles for famous things in the Church. For example, "Mary's Dowry" is a title supposedly ascribed to England in the Middle-Ages, because of that nation's love of - and dedication to - the Virgin. The sequence for Pentecost Mass "Veni, Sancte Spiritus" was apparently called "The Golden Sequence" by many.

Everywhere I read things like these, I never see an explanation. Since this forum is for Catholic culture as well as history, I wonder if we could discuss famous names, titles, and ideas that exist in our Faith... that we may understand them better!

This may go nowhere, but I wanted to try anyway...  :)
