Nadiya is a girl’s name of Russian and Arabic origins, meaning “hope” and “moist with dew.” In Arabic languages, the word Nadiyyah translates to “tender” and “delicate,” which is sure to be true during baby’s early years. A multi-cultural name with umpteen iterations, Nadiya will never go out of style. Giving your little cherub an etymology like this reminds them to keep strong during the darkest of nights because the morning dew makes it all worthwhile.
