Other Origin(s):Egyptian, Latin
Meaning:Beloved; Rebellious; Mind, intellect
Minnie is a feminine name formed as a fresh-faced alternative to a bevvy of ancient titles. Predominantly linked to Miriam, Minnie is rooted in the Egyptian root mr, meaning "beloved," and the Hebrew root mry, meaning "rebellious." A loveable rogue dressed up in a playful intonation, Minnie paints quite the complex character. How fitting then that the name finds equally compelling ties to the ancient Roman goddess Minerva. As the deity of crafts and wisdom, Minerva instils Minnie with an alternative Latin origin and the meaning "mind" or "intellect." Far more than a pretty pet name, underestimate Minnie if you dare.
