This is the name of my youngest niece. My brother in law picked the name. Naming her after a comic book character with the name Iria. My sister was fine with the name considering she picked out their last two kids' names. My niece is Iria Celeste and people have complimented her on the name countless times. I am surprised to see the name on this sight and had assumed it was a form of Iris or something.
I accidentally typed this. But I think this name is very pretty.
Galician pronunciation is /ˈi.ɾjɐ/. [noted -ed] -- consider Galician Iria to be derived from "Prerromano / Galaico: Pedra, vila (Iria foi unha guerreira celta). De iria Flavia."

The Galician form of Irene is Iría.
Portuguese Iria and Galician Iria are two different names.
This name was given to 6 girls in America in 2013. Also was strangely given to 5 boys in 1927!

This name is so pretty! I like it better than Irene, which is much more common (in the English language).
