Minerva was a powerful witch. She was the grandmother of Isobel McGonagall née Ross, and, through her, the great-grandmother of Minerva, Malcolm and Robert McGonagall Jr.

Isobel named her firstborn child in her grandmother's honour, because she missed the family and magical community which she had to leave behind when she married a Muggle man.[1]

Etymology

This is the Roman version of the Greek divinity Athena, the goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare.
