Meaning:victory; gleam; glow
Chaiya is a masculine name of Thai origin that packs a mighty punch. Meaning "victory," Chaiya is not for the faint of heart, being deeper aligned with the Thai boxing style, Muay Chaiya. Much like the ancient combat sport, Chaiya hails from one of Thailand's oldest cities, once thought to be part of the Srivijaya Kingdom. So strong is this tie that Chaiya is considered a variation of the city's original Malay name Cahaya, meaning "gleam" or "glow"—a fitting visual for a natural-born champion.
