|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*.
