Other Origin(s):Uncertain
Meaning:Sunrise; East
If you like the sound of Asia, you’re sure to like how Azia just rolls off your tongue. While it's widely believed to mean “sunrise” as per Greek sources, there is reason to believe that it comes from the Assyrian word for “east.” In the Qur'an, Asia was the name of the Pharaoh’s wife and Moses’s foster mother. Today, its reference to the continent far supersedes its bearers and for good reason too. As an emerging global power, it’s most definitely a space to watch out for. If you feel the same about your little one, this moniker can inspire them to take on the world or even rise to the occasion.
