There’s something charmingly old-world about this name, whether you’re pronouncing it Ah-ya or Ah-ri-ya. While Arya is a relatively recent name for girls in English-speaking countries, it’s been around a lot longer in India and Iran as a boy’s name, where the Sanskrit meaning is “noble”. Arya is also linked to the Old Irish “aire”, which also means “noble”.
