n.

one of a class of medieval German poets who imitated the troubadours, 1825, from German minnesinger, from minne “love,” especially “sexual love” (from Old High German minna “loving memory,” originally “memory;” see mind (n.)) + singer (see singer). German minne by c.1500 no longer was considered decent, and it became a taboo word until revived 18c. in poetic language.
