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


NINEVE.  Arthurian.  The Lady of the Lake.  Probably from Nineveh, the capital of Syria, meaning "habitation of Nin," from a compound of Nin and naveh (habitation). (The Bible Explainer, Nicholson, 1870). 

    Then the Lady of the Lake, that was always friendly unto king Arthur, understood by her subtle crafts that he was like to have been destroyed; and so the Lady of the Lake, that hight Nineve, came into the forest to seek sir Launcelot du Lake.Sir T. Malory: History of Prince Arthur, ii. 57 (1470).
    This name occurs three times in the Morte d'Arthur
—once as "Nimue," once as "Nineve," and once as "Ninive."  Probably "Nimue" (q.v.) is a clerical error, as we also find Nynyue. (The Reader's Handbook of Famous Names in Fiction, &c., Brewer, 1899)
