Other Origin(s):Roman
Meaning:drop of the sea
Minette is a girl's name of French origin thought to emerge from the ancient title Maria. Though a feminine variation of the Old Roman name Marius, Maria holds a meaning of its own, pulling away from the original translation as "bitter" or "rebellion." Rather Maria finds its true essence in the Latin stilla maris, meaning "drop of the sea." From this sweet suggestion of depth and flow, Minette arises, containing within untold strength. Capable of great change and an untamable nature, little Minette is sure to be a force to be reckoned with, yet adored by many.
