Though primarily Welsh in origin, Arian is a boy's name with roots that extend deep into greek mythology, too. Mainly meaning "silver" in Wales, ancient mythos paints Arian as a far more animate character. A variation of the Greek Arion, the name boasts ties with the immortal black-maned horse bred by the Gods themselves. Once gifted to the mighty Hercules, Arion was renowned for his great speed and heroic deeds. Named for such a quicksilver steed, Arian is certain to encourage an agile mind and even quicker wit.
