Other Origin(s):Persian
Aarya is a gender-neutral name of Sanskrit and Persian origin, deriving from the Sanskrit word ārya or āryā meaning “noble.” In Old Persian, the word is spelled ariya, which is another variant of the name along with Arya. In India, Indonesia and Iran, Aarya is a popular boy’s name and surname, while in Cambodia, it’s more commonly given to girls. Recently, the name has gained worldwide popularity thanks to Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, but its real-life meaning and origins are equally as interesting.
