Origin of the name MINNIE.
Etymology of the name MINNIE.
Meaning of the baby name MINNIE.

  

MINNIE.  Irish.  A diminutive form of Mary (q.v.), meaning "bitter." (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905)

MINNIE.  English.  A pet form of German Wilhelmina (q.v.), and English Williamina (q.v.), meaning "resolute helmet."  But an independent name, it may have the same origin as Minna and Minne, meaning "memory."

MINNIE is generally used, in England, as a diminutive of Wilhelmina, and in Ireland as a diminutive of Mary; but it has a real and distinct existence and a special meaning of its own, which is "held in memory" or "beloved."... (Ibid., Swan, 1905)
