JK Rowling Is A Goddamn Genius
Not that we didn't know that already. But I just remembered/found out that Minerva is the Roman name for the goddess Athena. And as per Wikipedia:
"Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic war, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill in ancient Greekreligion and mythology.
Athena is portrayed as a shrewd companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavour."
You know, Minerva. As in McGonagall?
I have read this series probably somewhere in the realm of 30-40 times. And there is always something new to discover.
