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".
