Sharada comes from "Sharat" that means Autumn.

The Goddess Saraswati is said to love the Autumn season. She is the Goddess that rules Autumn.

The dhyana shloka of Mahasaraswati in the Devi Mahatmya says:

"Wielding in her lotus-hands the bell, trident, ploughshare, conch, pestle, discus, bow, and arrow, her lustre is like that of a moon shining in the autumn sky. She is born from the body of Gowri and is the sustaining base of the three worlds. That Mahasaraswati I worship here who destroyed Sumbha and other asuras."

Pranams.

Namaste Ekam Ji,

I read somewhere that Sri Saraswati and Sri MahaSaraswati are different Devatas.
