Derived from Old Norse mímir "memory", which is related to Old English gemimor "well-known", modern Dutch mijmeren "to muse, to ponder" and Latin memor "mindful, remembering." In Norse mythology, Mímir was a god who had omniscient wisdom and knowledge and who was keeper of the Well of Wisdom in Jotunheim (the world of the Giants).
