If baby is as beautiful and changeable as a river, think about the name Rhia. Meaning “a flowing stream,” this name has both Greek and Welsh origins. In Greek mythology, Rhea—the name from which Rhia is derived—was deemed the Mother of Gods; namely, the five eldest Olympian gods, including Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. Rhea is also the name of a river in Wales, while Rhiannon remains an important literary figure in the Welsh Mabinogi. As the most essential substance on the planet, water is what keeps us all alive. And you might feel the same way about your little Rhia! So, impart a healthy respect and love for nature and the world around them onto baby with this swimmingly memorable name!
