I know this is kind of random but I named uhhh... one of my school set squares this because it is AIR spelt backwards.

Ria is a very calm, quiet and petite name just like the girl who has it. The name suits someone who is blonde and shy but has her own cool things about her and a wonderful personality!

Actually, the only Ria I knew was loud and obnoxious. But I love the name. I think it's short for Februaria. I want to name my kid that.

My grandmother's name is Marie, but when she was a teenager she went by Ria. Except she spelt it Rhea. But I think if it's spelt like Rhea, it can easily be made fun of, i.e. Rhea diarhea. Yeah gross. But I've heard it be done before.

Ria is also commonly used in the Netherlands as a short form of Maria. [noted -ed]

Too minimalist and plain.

This name is also often used in Limburgish (mainly for women born well before 1980).

This is also a nickname for Victoria. If my name was Victoria I'd wanna be called Ria and not Vi like many people are because that is also the nickname of Violet.

My name is Ria, well my real name is Maria, but I go by Ria. I love the nickname! My mom said that if she had known that everyone was going to call me Ria, she would have just named me Ria.

Ria is my given birth name (although it's often shortened to Ree). People always comment how it's pretty and short and sweet and I only know of 2 others locally so it's not massively common. However, please do think seriously before considering using this for your daughter: As a small child and as an adult it is fine but expect taunts during the teenage years of "diarrhea" and "gonorrhea" (yes teenagers are so mature - not!). However those are my only 2 reasons for not liking my name. Otherwise as far as names go, it's not too bad...
