In Hebrew this name means “lioness,” but it is also a musical term derived from an 18th-century Italian word meaning “air” or "tune." An aria is an expressive melody sung by a single voice, usually in an opera. Either way, Aria hits all the right notes with parents. The TV exposure hasn’t hurt either, as viewers have watched the quirky and beautiful Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars and the fearless and avenging Aryah Stark on Game of Thrones.
