Araminta: baby girl name popularity and meaning

Araminta

Like so many modern names, Araminta is a hybrid of two other names - but it's not new. In fact, it was invented in the 1600s. It's a mashup of Arabella, meaning "yielding to prayer," and "Aminta" meaning "defender." So maybe when it's time for little Araminta's nap, she'll defend her right to stay, well, upright.
