Game of thrones?

Love it as a name, but then I kinda love the character, so biased

Awomancalledhorse Thu 23-Jun-11 00:43:00

Bit too close to Aryan for me, sorry!

sansae Thu 23-Jun-11 00:45:30

Well, i first came across it when i read the inheritance cycle by c. Paolini but little arya's character in game of thrones is brilliant and sort of reminds me of myself when i was little!

I agree with a PP, too close to Aryan for me.

TechLovingDad Thu 23-Jun-11 09:02:23

Bit like Aryan.

Also might people not say Arya here? grin

I thought of Aryan, sorry!

How about Anya?

i'm not british so i'm sorry if i don't get it...

what is aryan?!

MrsTwinks Thu 23-Jun-11 12:50:57

It's hard to explain fully, google it. But in a nutshell Aryan is what they call the nazi ideal person, the master race and all that entails.

sansae Thu 23-Jun-11 12:55:06

i see now, we have a different name for it

shame really, i was looking for a name that wasn't too OTT but related to my love of certain fictional books/games and so on.

Depends on intended pronunciation - I read it as AH-REE-AH which doesnt sound like Aryan which is AIR-EE-AN. I like the name this way but if it is intended with AIR at the beginning then I agree with the others.

sansae Thu 23-Jun-11 13:24:36

no, i pronounce it as ah-ree-ah not with AIR at the beginning

SloganLogan Thu 23-Jun-11 13:37:46

How about Aria, with the pronounciation you like (Ah-ree-ah)

Dummyhunter Thu 23-Jun-11 14:30:32

I love it but prefer the spelling Aria

MelinaM Thu 23-Jun-11 14:33:39

Aria is much prettier, lovelysmile

TrilllianAstra Thu 23-Jun-11 14:34:59

Aria will be easier for people to pronounce.

But I like Arya.
