Emanating with strength, resilience, and divine beauty, Zarya is a feminine name reserved for the fiercest of hearts. It's a name inspired by the goddess Zorya, who personified the dawn in Slavic folklore. Known by multiple titles—Zarya included—Zorya is the daughter of the sun god Dazbog, responsible for opening the gates of her father's palace and unleashing him across the sky. A multi-faceted figure, Zorya is composed of three distinct goddesses, each responsible for a different phase of the day. Zarya perhaps best embodies Zorya's dawn aspect, the name itself stemming from the Russian word zarya, meaning "sunrise." In this light, Zarya is an energetic spirit filled with zeal and passion for the day ahead.
