Comments for the name Aida

Comments for AIDA:

Probably the meaning of "Aida" is connected with the noun "help", because each of the words "aid", "aide", "ayuda" means "help" as a noun, respectively in English, French, Spanish.

It says, under Ayda, that it means 'returning'. There's no reason it should have anything to do with the words for help in Romance languages (and 'aid' was borrowed from French into English), because it is an Arabic name.

I love the sound of this ("ah-EE-da"), but I would absolutely cringe if it got pronounced "Ada" or "Ida". There is something dramatic, musical and womanly about the sound.

Aida is also Arabic, where it means "gift".

Aida is feminine in Arabic. It means "to return" and Odeh is the male the version of Aida and it means "the return". Gift is "hadiyyah" and in older Arabic it is "Aaidyah".
