Aniya: baby girl name meaning and popularity

Aniya

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.

Nicknames:

Ani, Niya.

Famous people named Aniya:

Olympic taekwondo athlete Aniya Louissaint.

Fun facts:

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