- Pleurophyllidia loveni Bergh, 1866 (original)
- Armina. Girl’s first name of Old German origin, meaning “soldier” or “warrior”.
- Loveni. After Prof. Dr. Sven Ludvig Lovén, (1809-1895), Swedish marine zoologist from Stockholm. After his dissertation in Lund in 1829, he studied in Berlin in 1830-31 for Ehrenberg (q.v.) and Rudolphi (q.v.). After this, he started working with “lower” animal life (mainly molluscs and sea urchins) along the Swedish west coast and also along Norway and in the Arctic area (an expedition in 1836-37 during 17 months included the Hammerfest area and Spitsbergen).As director (from 1841) of the Invertebrate Section of the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm, Lovén was the foremost initializer of the establishing of the Kristineberg Marine Zoological Station in 1877, at a locality he himself had visited for the first time in 1839. Several animals are named for Lovén.
