- Comments and insights on the name Adia: | Edit
Although people often mispronounce my name as "Aida" or "Add-ee-a," and I know it's very unlikely I'll find a keychain with my name on it- I have always loved having a unique name with a great meaning- "a gift from God." I get lots of compliments about my name and I think it really matches my personality. I wish more people would name their children "Adia"- I love it so much I often joke I will name my daughter Adia, Jr.
Adia has the same letters as Aida.

It is not in Arabic, the meaning "gift from God" is in Hebrew. Close.

Derived from Swahili adia "(valuable) gift" and from Hausa adia "gift".
