Etymology & Historical Origin - Riya
Riya is a Hindu name (रिया) and means “singer” in Sanskrit. Because the name is Hindu in origin it is rarely used among English-speakers in the Western World. It is common among Indian immigrants to the West but it has yet to be adopted by the general population. We are calling this name American for now – since we don’t have a Hindu origin category just yet.
Popularity of the Name Riya
Riya is one of the most popular female names given to Indian-American baby girls. Overall, this is a low ranking name, but within the Hindu community specifically, Riya is a favorite. The name first appeared on the female naming charts in 2002 but resides at the very bottom of the charts. Names of Sanskrit origin have yet to demonstrate crossover appeal among the greater population. Yet if people became more aware of meanings behind the name, they might be more readily embraced. Riya is a pretty yet simple example of this: it has a lovely meaning (i.e., singer) and a soft delicate sound.
