Not only does this name sound beautiful, it means lion in Hebrew and I like a strong meaning for a girl like that. Additionally, my husband and I love the character Arya in the Game of Thrones books series. Another great, strong female role model.

There was a minor male character named Aryeh in the Bible. From this origin, the name is Hebrew and means "lion." The name Aria, as used in the USA, has been around for girls since 1900. It is probably the transferred use of the Italian word aria, meaning "air" (as in "song; melody"). It is a vocal solo in an opera or oratorio.
