Yes it was, nobody knows why, but I think that after confederations of ancient nations, it got the name.

Was europe named after europa? according to what I've been reading nobody has the answer to this question. In mythology europa was taken from phoenicia by the bull (zeus) to crete. And thats all there was to her story. So what has europe got to do with europa? if not then why is she depicted on one side of the the euro coin?
