  1. About 3 months before I had her
    Love it all together
    She has 2 middle names like her sister

  2. Amazing

  3. It is a strong name and my favorite Greek Goddess

  4. Everything is perfect. We are just looking for names that starts with letter ‘A’ since her dad has the same first letter name in his given name as well. 🙂

  5. I choose the name Athena because in greek mythology she is the goddess of wisdom

  6. It’s my middle name. It’s so unique and beautiful ! Who doesn’t want to be named after a mythical Goddess ?

  7. My husband and I wanted to choose a strong name that had an ancient ring to it. My husband’s family has Greek roots, so that is how we were led to look through the Greek mythology for a name. Athena is the goddess of wisdom and war. Perfect for our strong and smart baby girl!
    I love her name because it sounds so beautiful and strong. We call her Thena for short, I usually call her Thena beans or Thena beena. We love our little goddess so much.

  8. I chose the name Athena because ever since I was little I always loved the name plus I love the meaning of her name She is a very important goddess of many things. She is goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.

  9. Athena is a strong warriors name. Named after the goddess of war, wisdom truth and knowledge.
