DariaThis name sounds like someone famous and important because of the strongly accented first syllable. I think if I were to name my daughter this, it would be because I would hope she would be a daring person, because the name sounds like a person who is adventurous.
Daria is the feminine form of Darius. Darius is the Latin form of the Persian name Darayavahush. This was the name of three kings of ancient Persia. In Persian, it means "possessing goodness." Daria is most commonly used in Slavic languages, though it recently got notice in the English-speaking world through the cartoon television show of the same name.
