User comments for Daria (Meaning / History Only)

Daria in Spanish, American, and German means rich. Irrespective of all the origins, the meaning of this name is same.

I don't know how a name that isn't indigenous can have an "American" name meaning. And any website that has "baby" in the title has dubious name definitions, at best, please don't trust them.

This name is originally *Persian*, and it is the WORD for SEA in Farsi. It's exactly as if you were to name your child "Sea" in English! :)

So, the meaning is far vaster and greater than anything you might have read!

Source: I'm a Persian-American born with this name. To demonstrate, people can be talking about going to the beach (we just call it sea) and I might turn my head, thinking they called me over.

All other languages (Greek, Russian, Hebrew, Arab) have adopted this name from Persia. Despite what the meaning in these languages ("kingly, wealthy") as well as the English encylopedia says, Daria is NOT a variant of the famous ancient Persian King Darius!
In our culture, Darius (really "Dariush," pronounced Daareeoosh) is a COMPLETELY different name & sound from Daria, the word for Sea. Ask any Persian person you meet what Daria means. :)

Meanings of the name can change due to time and sensibilities of the culture. Two more meanings of Darya include:

1. A name of Greek and Latin origin meaning "rich".
2. Wealthy; Upholds The Good

In regards to the Hebrew language, his interpretation of the name is valid and adds another meaning to the name, because of how it is spelled. It is up to the user to decide when there are choices.

Daria in Hebrew means God inhabits/dwells/lives (amongst...) with the combination Dar (dwell/inhabit/live) and Ya which means God.

"Darya" means pearl of wisdom in Hebrew. I don't know where your information comes from, but it's false. The early Hebrew form of God was "Yah" and not "Ya."

The name "Daria" has no connotation to God. It is strictly of Persian origin - Darayavaush, which means a person who keeps peace or has peace within him. Please don't add theism to a perfectly decent secular baby name.
