Minerva refers to a Roman goddess of crafts and wisdom. The name "Minerva" is probably imported from the Etruscans who called her Menrva.

Minerva was the descendant of Jupiter and Metis. She was well thought-out to be the virgin divinity of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, crafts and the inventor of music. As Minerva Medica, she was the divinity of medication and doctors. Romans said that Minerva was not born in the customary way, but somewhat Jupiter had a horrifying pain and Vulcan opened up his cranium and out appeared Minerva dressed in protective covering and holding a protect; this representation has fascinated Western writers and artists all the way through the ages. Ovid referred to her as the "goddess of a thousand works."
