Actually the word "Aryana" is of Iranic origins. The Iranic people - or how it is pronounced in old Persian : "Arya" - are Persians, saythians, Medians and other lingu-ethnically related people who lived in the region between southern Russia, east European lands to the south of today Iran. The people who lived in ancient Persia called themselves Aryan. The feminine form of the word is "Aryana" or "Ayryana" and refers to the "land" where those Aryans lived. Darius, the great the Persian king of the Achaemenid dynasty has described himself in a 2500 year old inscription : "I am a Persian, son of a Persian, an Aryan, from the Aryan nation". In Avesta, the holy book of the ancient Iranian religion, "Zoroasterianism" the land of Persian people and their cousins has been called "Aryana" which means the land of Aryans. Later as old Persian language transformed to middle Persian through a millennium, the word "Aryana" changed first to "Ayrian" and then "Eran" or "Iran".
Aryana originates from the Greek mythology name ARIADNE. Since Sanskrit is believed to be the origin of many European languages including Greek, you can find this name in Sanskrit scripts. In Sanskrit, Aryana means a noble and pure woman.
The name of a region in greater Persia might have been Ariana, Arianna, Aryanna, or Areyanna. But that is irrelevant of the meaning and origin of this name.
This name has Sanskrit and Greek origins, and it exudes beauty, feminine energy, and class.
I see this name among many Albanians, Italians, Germans, Persians, and some Russians.
