Arya, Aria

Arya is an Iranian male name as well as an Indian unisex name meaning “noble” from Sanskrit arya derived from a Proto-Indo-Iranian root word. While Aria is a variant transcription of the name, it’s also an Italian word referring to a musical piece written for a solo voice. It means “song, melody; air” which comes from Latin āēr (air) via Ancient Greek āér (mist; air) which derives from an uncertain origin, possibly either from Proto-Hellenic *awer (morning mist) or Proto-Indo-European *h₂ews- (dawn; east). Arya is also an Indian and Iranian surname originating from the given name.
