Meaning:Determined protector; Loving remembrance
If a certain Disney character comes to mind, you’re not alone. With one less ‘i,’ Minne is a girl’s name of Old German origin. Although it’s widely believed to be the shortened version of Wilhelmina, meaning “determined protector,” minne is a word found in Middle High German literature to mean “loving remembrance.” It’s used in reference to courtly love and affairs between knights and noblewomen. Frau Minne is seen to be a personification of this idea and appears in both poetry and prose as the goddess of romantic love. With this name in hand, baby will not only find it in their heart to love openly and unapologetically, but they will also feel inspired to pen their own happily-ever-afters, however star-crossed things may seem.
