The inspiration for the name Mettise came from the Greek mythology story of Metis. Metis was a Titan of wise counsel and known for her wisdom, skill, planning, cunning, and prudence.  She was a counselor to warriors in battle and was respected because it was known she would bear extremely powerful children. She was the mother of Athena (goddess of love, courage and inspiration) and daughter of Oceanus (river flowing encircling the world).
