Other Origin(s):Irish; Italian
Meaning:Returner; Visitor; Little fire
Aida is a feminine name of Arabic origin, translating to "returner" or "visitor." This name is a unique way to encourage baby's wanderlust and remind them they'll always be welcome home after their adventures. Aida may also come from the Old Irish name Aidan, meaning "little fire," which is sure to match their bright, fiery spirit from the start. If you want to encourage baby's love for the stage, Aida may also remind you of the Italian opera Aida, as well as Elton John's Broadway musical of the same name. Whether baby grows up to regularly visit the theater or be the star of the next big show, Aida can make for blazing encouragement.
