the end; pleasant place; heavenly valley
POPULARITY: 448
If the name Amaya is new to you, that’s because it’s been listed on the baby-name charts only since the turn of the century. It’s a pretty name with a mysterious past: It means either “the end” or “pleasant place,” both from the Basque region of Spain, or “heavenly place” in Japanese. It caught the eye of Peter Hermann of “Younger” and Mariska Hargitay of “Law and Order: SVU” when they adopted a girl in 2011.
