Athena is the name of the Greek goddess of justice and war. She was fair, noble, and strong.

This is one of my favorite themes for names

Amelia “work”
[name_f]Amity[/name_f] “friendship”
[name_f]Andromeda[/name_f] “advising like a man”
[name_f]Drucilla[/name_f] “strong”
[name_f]Honora[/name_f] “woman of honor”
[name_f]Minerva[/name_f] “of the mind; intellect”
Zamilla “having the strength of the sea”

Other similar threads:

I love [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]. Meaning - ‘intoxicating; she who intoxicates’. If it was pared with [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] as a middle name:

Maeve [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] = intoxicating wisdom

In my opinion name meanings don’t get much better than that.

I also like [name_f]Lilith[/name_f]. Her story is too long and complicated to explain but you should google her!
