Impression: Sheds new light on any dilemma, quietly brave and fiercely loyal, applauds the efforts of others, dramatic in her ways, ponders great issues and finds solutions, a fearless adversary, does not hesitate to get involved, she enhances her looks with a smile.

ALIA is derived from the name AALIYAH. It is more commonly used in Egypt. The meaning is similar to that of AALIYAH meaning "Highest, Most Exhalted" or "to ascend".

Alia is the younger sister of Paul Atreides, better know as Muad'dib, from Frank Herbert's Dune books. She was awakened to consciousness in the womb, "pre-born", considered an abomination by the Bene Gesserit.

Alia means other/other/else in Latin.

I've always assumed that Alia in the Dune books had the Latin rather than the Semitic name: is anyone aware of evidence that her name was in fact a form of Aliyah etc and not a Latin word meaning: Other, or: Different?

In view of the fact that the women's college, Bene Gesserit, with its very high standards has a name meaning "She Will Have Done Well", Frank Herbert seemed to enjoy using Latin names.

Concerning Alia Atreides, I presume the Semitic meaning was intended as Alia was the "Womb of Heaven". Lofty and Heaven seem to go together naturally.

I absolutely love this name. I also like the spelling Aliyah, but Alia is really my favorite. It reminds me of a sweet little girl, probably because of six-year-old Alia in the book series The Shadow Children, written by Margaret Peterson Haddix.

This is my 6 year old cousin's name, and she's so adorable! I love this name. She pronounces it Ah-lee-ah. It's usually spelled Aaliyah, but she spells it differently. :) "ALIA"
