Pronunciation: mi-NEH-ah (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Literature)

Meaning: Created by Finnish writer Mika Waltari for a character in his novel The Egyptian (1945). Waltari may have based the name on the name of King Minos (in the novel, Minea is a priestess from Crete) or the Swedish phrase min egna "my own". Another theory, however, considers this name to be an elaboration of Mina.
