(ar EYE an rawd): This is a Celtic deity name which sounds both strong and beautiful to me; the mythological figure was the goddess of the heavens and said to reside in the skies.

Pronounced /ar YAHN rhod/ (the "rh" sounding a bit like "hr"), Arianrhod comes from the Welsh elements arian meaning "silver" and rhod meaning "wheel." This name is used in Welsh mythology and may be based on a Celtic goddess.
