"alias" used on marriage record?

I am trying to dig up ANY information on my gggg-grandfather, Phillip Wells, of Burlington County, New Jersey (born around 1770). I found the following under marriages for Burlington County:

Philip Wells and Mary Fiels alias Willims

(Mary Fields)

Can anyone tell me what "alias" means in this context? does it mean that "Willims" is her birth name?

Thanks for any help,
