Heralding a fresh start and a new chapter, Zaria is a feminine name inspired by the Slavic goddess of the dawn—Zorya. Meaning "light," Zorya is long revered as the Morning Star and daughter of the Sun god Dazhbog, responsible for throwing open the gates to his splendid palace and illuminating the world. As a variation of the Russian zarya, meaning "dawn" or "sunrise," Zaria is a fitting name for any radiant early riser. Zaria is also linked to the Arabic and Persian Zahrah, lending the meanings "flower," "blossom," "brilliance," and "bright" to your vibrant flower bud just waiting to bloom.
