This is very beautiful, and the Greek words are used suitably!
You see how Eros is the means for going "higher"/ expand ourselves?
"Athena" is just a name. It symbolizes many things, of course. But, the whole point is love in a wider context than persons, names, etc. Eros/the eros/love for "her", makes you expand.
But, Diotima of Mantineia says all these in a more beautiful way than I do, in Plato's Symposium. So, I'll stay in silence now.
