Reply to: meaning by Minta
There are three possible origins and meanings to the name "Minta".

1. From the Greek, "Minthe", meaning the aromatic plant known as "mint".

2. One source I found claims that the name is Teutonic, supposedly meaning "remembered with love".

3. "Minta" first appeared in the 1860s as a short form "Araminta", a name invented by the 18th century English playwright, Sir John Vanbrugh, for his comedy *The Confederacy*.
