Zia is one of my favourite names, but as a feminine name. It is beautiful and melodic without being complicated, and it has a great universal quality about it. It seems like it could come from a variety of cultures, not just Arabic.

Zia is the main character in the romantic comedy "Wristcutters: A Love Story", which looks really good. He is a man. This name is cooler for a boy than a girl, though it is pretty for a girl, as well. It's just a better name for a boy.

I don't really understand this current fascination with stealing every good boy name that has ever existed and using it for girls. Hint: just because a name ends with an 'A', it doesn't mean it's feminine. Parents, there are plenty of unique and beautiful names out there that are actually meant for girls, go use THOSE.

In most new Arabic books Zia is classified as a female and the meaning of the name means 'light and splendour' which explains why the tribe used the sun as their symbol.

Zia Rashid is a character in Rick Riordan's the Red Pyramid and the Throne of Fire. Except this Zia was a girl, not boy.
