Meaning of Grooa name

Grooa, or Gróa, is the name of a female figure from the old Norse mythology, who had the prophetic ability of foresight.

In modern terms, this might be interpreted as the allegoric evolution from the state of common knowledge to the higher state of wisdom that allows to recognise new patterns, identify opportunities, design visions and lead towards the unexpected and unprecedented with a leap of imagination that produces innovative solutions.
