Pronounced Arr-yah. If you heard of someone calling their child this name, would you make any assumptions about what her parents were like/ what job they did?

SecretNutellaFix Fri 23-Nov-12 15:09:20

I would think they were Game of Thrones fans.

Opera singer?

D0oinMeCleanin Fri 23-Nov-12 15:10:12

Her father would be the hand of the king and her mother would be a SAHM and her sister would be a spoilt wuss grin

Sorry but Game of Thrones is all I think when I hear that name.

BunnyLebowski Fri 23-Nov-12 15:10:38

Father is Warden of the North and Lord of Winterfell.

Mother is SAHM.

I had a friend called Arya. His father was a professional insurance fraudster. We're no longer in touch.

Invade Poland?

Her mother is the reclusive queen of the elves, and her father was slain by the Forsworn... But she rides a dragon, so it's all ok.

Actually I quite like Evander hmm

Arr-yah thinking of calling her that? Arr-yah sure you've thought this through?

KinkyDorito Fri 23-Nov-12 15:41:21

It is a lovely name.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Fri 23-Nov-12 15:42:58

Pirates. Arr and yah are two very piratey noises.

StrawWars Fri 23-Nov-12 15:45:55

They could be porn-stars. Arr-yah does sound a bit like a sex-noise.

ditavonteesed Fri 23-Nov-12 15:47:12

the ones I know are teachers. hth

almapudden Fri 23-Nov-12 15:48:39

Weave lentils and bake placenta cupcakes.

AlphaBeta82 Fri 23-Nov-12 15:49:50

There is a version of the name Ayra pronounced I-ra - I think both versions are a lovely name!

ChocolateCoins Fri 23-Nov-12 16:08:56

I thought it was pronounced ar-re-a? blush this is what I'm planning on calling dc2 if it's a girl.

D0oinMeCleanin Fri 23-Nov-12 16:18:07

ar-re-a would be Aria. Arya is as the OP says it.

MikeLitoris Fri 23-Nov-12 16:21:57

I have never made a sex noise that sounds like Arya, I hope not anyway

The arya I know is the daughter of a nurse and an IT person (<--technical name)

IHeartKingThistle Fri 23-Nov-12 16:29:28

Honestly? I would think they had white supremacist tendencies. I've said this before on another thread about this name. Lots of people don't know it's from Game of Thrones and those 'Aryan' connotations would make me very uncomfortable tbh.

Shame, because in itself it is a pretty name!

HarlettOScara Fri 23-Nov-12 16:33:06

I know a baby Arya. Mother is SAHM, father is hand of the king in IT. Both are huge Game of Thrones fans.
