Why do people seem to prefer to use "m_variable" in Visual C++? What does the M stand for?

Can someone explain to me why it seems that the preferred way of naming variables is to use "m_" in front? ie "m_x, m_y, etc.?"
Also, let's say I want to rename the variable from "m_x" to "m_Input1"..how do I do this? I've created a dialog-based MFC app in VS 2008, and would like to rename a variable that I had earlier attached to a button control.
