Athena

wise
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 336
Athena is quite a girl—in Greek mythology, she was born fully grown and armored when she popped out the forehead of her dad, Zeus, as the goddess of wisdom and the arts. Athenians took her name for their city and dedicated a temple, the Parthenon, to her to show their ardor and devotion to this smart, brave goddess. Her name is derived from “ath,” which means "sharp," and “aine,” meaning "praise." Comedian Tina Fey, a smart woman herself, named her younger daughter Penelope Athena in 2011.
