In fact, Zaria or Zarya (Russian: заря) is the Russian word for "sunrise, dawn”. The Slavic goddess was known as the morning star and heavenly bride to her worshippers who greeted her at dawn. The names Zaria, Zariah and Zariyah are most common in the United States, and particularly among African-Americans.
