Inanna (Sumerian Inannasumerianblack.png DINA NA; Akkadian DINGIRINANNA DINANA ) is the Sumerian goddess of sexual love, fertility, and warfare. Alternative Sumerian names include Innin, Ennin, Ninnin, Ninni, Ninanna, Ninnar, Innina, Ennina, Irnina, Innini, Nana and Nin, commonly derived from an earlier Nin-ana "lady of the sky", although Gelb (1960) presented the suggestion that the oldest form is Innin (DINNIN) and that Ninni, Nin-anna and Irnina are independent goddesses in origin.[1] Her Akkadian counterpart is Ishtar. It has also been suggested[who?] that Innana has an ancient non-Sumerian origin, related to the Hurrian Goddess Hannahannah.[citation needed]
