Why did Nike name their company Nike

I'm interested to know why the company Nike named their company Nike.

Nike the company

Nike is a very famous company that sells shoes, clothes, accessories, and etc. Their message is pretty much get better and win.

Nike was the goddess of victory, both in battle and peaceful competition. Nike was also able to run at great speed.
