Priya is a girl’s name of Sanskrit origin that means “beloved.” In Hindu mythology, this name is closely related to Daksha, an agent of creation. A very welcome creation in your home, this little girl will undoubtedly be a beloved addition to your family. The feminine title is typically given to girls born in August on account of traditional naming based on baby’s birthday and horoscope, but can also be used year-round, reminding Priya of the love that she carries throughout life.
