Actually, I read in a name book that Athena actually means "wise", which makes sense as she is the Goddess of Wisdom.

My first daughter's name is Athina, the original form of Athene. She is the goddess of wisdom in Greek mythology and associated with the Owl. Athina is the goddess of Athens, she gave the city the olive tree as a present, that was one of the most important crop of ancient and even today's Greece. My daughter has 100 olive trees on our field and at the age of 2 she is already looking after them. :)
