Aja is a name that comes from the west coast of Africa. In the Mandinka language of The Gambia, as well as the Fula, Wolof, and Jola tribes, it means a female pilgrim, in Ibo and Yuroba (west african languages) it means "lion" and in Yuroba it is also the name of a female god who teaches her follwers the medicinal usages of herbs and plants. Also in arabic, it means a high priestess who leads her people to Mecca which is the holy land.
