  [key]
Other Forms FormsMeena, Mena, Menas, Minas

Meaning & History

Mina, a very old but yet a very modern name, is currently used by Coptic Christian males in Egypt.

Originally derives from the Egyptian Pharaoh King Menes who was a pharaoh of the Early Dynastic Period of Ancient Egypt and believed to be the one to unite Upper and Lower Egypt. Mina or Menes is traditionally known as the founder of the First Dynasty of Ancient Egypt (3200–3000 BC), and the first pharaoh of a unified Egypt.

The name was later adopted by Coptic Christians in its current form Mina or Mena. Most notable name that contributed to its widespread use among Christians in modern day Egypt, is Saint Mina (also known as St. Minas or St. Menas). St. Mina was a Coptic soldier in the Roman army in the 4th Century, martyred because he refused to recant his Christian faith.
