The name Minerve is derived from the Greek goddess Minerva. She was the goddess of wisdom and intelligence, also of war and the olive tree.

She was the daughter of Jupiter and the titan Metis. Her characteristics are a helmet, cloak, a shield decorated with Medusa's head, lance, the olive tree, an owl, a grape vine and winged Victory.
