Comments for the name Arya


Comments for ARYA:

This is the name of one of the main characters in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, and I know of at least two girls who have been named after the character in the novel. I do not know if Mr. Martin took the character's name from the Sanskrit one or if he independently invented it, but he does pronounce his character's name as "AR-yuh".

It is pronounced with a long A, Ārya, as in Air-e-yah.

I love this name! It is so pretty and unique! I'm only 13, but I still like to think of names for when I am older and married. This is my number 1 favorite name! I would recommend this name to anybody.

For a boy it's pronounced AHR-yuh
For a girl it's pronounced ARH-yah
The difference between the feminine and masculine is the slight difference in sound at the end.

I have a feeling that many of the parents who use this have no idea that its an Indian name, but rather use it as a 'unique' and 'creative' spelling of the über trendy name aria. Quite sad, how narrow minded some people can be.

Reminds me of the "Aryans".

The stepsister of my stepsister (wow, that's confusing!) had a baby girl recently and named her Arya - not as a "kre8yve" spelling of Aria, but after the character in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series and, consequently, the Game of Thrones TV show. The character Arya Stark is really awesome, and a good namesake.

As for the name itself, I think both Aria and Arya are quite pretty. They're elegant without being frilly, and still substantial. However, Arya is listed on here as a unisex name in Indian culture, and I just can't imagine a man named Arya!
