Origins of the name:

Bellona: In Roman mythology, the Goddess of war, and the wife of Mars. In her temple at Rome, the senators gave audience to foreign ambassadors and to generals returned from war. At the gate was a small column, called the "Column of War", against which was thrown a spear whenever war was declared against and enemy.
