Arcadia is a region of Greece. Arcadia also refers to a poetic and idyllic paradise.

There is a city in Florida by the name of Arcadia. It's mostly where surrounding Floridians go antique shopping, since Arcadia is mainly an antique town. I never knew that this was an actual name used on people, but I had always thought it was pretty. A nickname for Arcadia could be Cadi, like Katie but spelled differently.

There is an episode of the X-Files titled "Arcadia" about a gated community called Arcadia Falls.

I prefer Arcadie, but still a great name!

Arcadia is used in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. So this name does belong to a culture, not just "various". I do like the name, though.

A famous bearer of this name was a 19th-Century mistress of King Leopold I of the Belgians, Arcadia Meyer (nee Claret). They had two sons together, George and Arthur, and was created Baronin von Eppinghoven. :)

Arcadia were a pop group formed in 1985 by Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor of Duran Duran, as a side project during a break in that band's schedule.

I think this is a beautiful name. As someone pointed out earlier, it derives from Arcadia, a rural paradise in southern Greece. There is a Latin proverb, Et in Arcadia ego, which means, I (Death) can be found even in Arcadia. Despite that rather morbid sentiment, I associate the name with a tranquil, beautiful, warm countryside... [noted -ed]

I can't take this name seriously without thinking of the city of Arcadia in California, USA (as I grew up in that area).
