  • Her first English name is a reference to the goddess Athena in Greek mythology; this is likely meant to link her name with the given English names of both Apollo Justice (whose first name comes from the Greek god of the same name) and Phoenix Wright (whose first name originates from the mythical sacred fire bird of the same name).
