Meissa is a star in the constellation Orion. "Meissa" derives from the Arabic "Al-Maisan" which means "The Shining One". This term was used for Gamma Gemini, but was somehow also mistakenly applied to Meissa and the name stuck. The original Arabic name for this star, "Al Hakah" refers to the Arabic lunar mansion that includes this star and the two of φ Ori.
