Latinized form of Ποιμενία (Poimenia), which is the feminine form of Poimenios and perhaps also Poimen. Their latinized forms are Poemenius and Poemen respectively.This name was most notably borne by a wealthy but pious 4th-century Roman noblewoman, who financed the construction of a church named Imbomon (now called Chapel of the Ascension) on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.
