Derived from Greek ἀρεία (areia) meaning "warlike, martial", literally "of Ares, devoted to Ares", the feminine form of ἄρειος (areios) (see AREIOS). This was an epithet of the goddesses Aphrodite and Athena. In some Greek myths this name was also borne by the mother of Miletus, founder of the ancient city of Miletus.
