Aniya: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Possibly an Americanized derivative of the Hebrew name Anna, which means "grace," although it goes along with the recent "-iya" and "-iyah" trend, so it may be a modern invention. But even if her name doesn't have a clear meaning, your little Aniya will make her own meaning very clear when she gives you an opinion. Which she most definitely will, starting in toddlerhood.


Ani, Niya.

Famous people named Aniya:

Olympic taekwondo athlete Aniya Louissaint.

Fun fact:

Aniya and its soundalike Aniyah both appeared on the popularity charts in 1999, but Aniyah-with-an-h has continually outranked Aniya thus far.
