Zarya (ZAHR yah), (ZAH ree uh), or (zah RY uh) is the Russian word for "sunrise."

Zaria or Zoria is the goddess of beauty in Slavic mythology. A once-popular goddess also associated with the morning, Zaria was known to her worshippers as "the heavenly bride." She was greeted at dawn as "the brightest maiden, pure, sublime, honorable."

Zaria may also be taken as a modern variant of Sarah, meaning "princess" in Hebrew; or of the Arabic name Zara, meaning "blossom".
