"I named my 1st born daughter "ZARIA". I first heard the name on the Parent Hood many many years ago and fell in love with the name. I decided then if I was blessed with a daughter I would name her ZARIA and I did. Once I discovered the meaning of the name [princess/goddess, radiance, beauty, blossoming flower, gift of love, & rose], I was convinced this was it. Family & friends offerd me many other very beautiful names while I was pregnant but none of them felt like the right fit for my radiant princess. I never revealed my idea for ZARIA's name with anyone, not even with her daddy, until about 2 weeks before my due date of 12/27/08. She was born 12/23/08. Her daddy and I couldn't agree on any names for her until I told him ZARIA. He was hooked from the first moment. Our only reservation was how would we spell her name so people could pronounce it correctly. We had Xaria, Zarriah, Zariah. Initally, we decided on Zarriah. After a week, I changed the spelling to its original form. I felt the name was unique and beautiful enough on its own without and extras or deviations. I receive different reactions from the name. Who Cares? Most people can't recognize beauty when they see or hear it anyway. Look how everyone has fallen for the woman and name Beyonce'." Feb. 8, 2009:
"My name is Zaria and I'm eleven!

"My daughters name is also Zaria! She is 11 1/2 years old. I got her name out of an african baby names book. Zaria is the capital of North Central Nigeria and home to it's largest university. Maybe that name bring about highly intelligent children. My daughter is very very smart and very very honest. I pray that I continue being a strong and positive role model (mother:))for my little lady." Oct. 20, 2008:
"My daughter's name is Zaria Alexa. She was born March 14, 2008. I fell in love with the name after hearing it in a bible discourse. I learned that the name has special meaning; associated with the morning." Sep. 29, 2008:
"I had the name in my back pocket, ever since the 'Parenthood' aired. I always said, if I have a daughter I'll name her Zaria. Now my princess is going on five! She too was a premie, five weeks early weighing 4lbs 6oz. But now she's as tall as the six year-olds around her and is starting to read! Must be something to the name!

"We gave this name to our daughter when she was born six years ago. We all love the name, but it seems to confuse most people. We pronounce it ZAR-ee-a, but it seems that most people do not know how to pronounce it when they read it.
Once they hear the name, most do not forget it.
We have often been asked if we just made up the name.
Our daughter especially likes to use the nick-name "Z"." Feb. 11, 2008:
"I discovered this name in 2005 while pregnant with my daughter. It stuck me as THE ONE immediately! What a beautiful, yet unusual name. We pronounce it ZAR-ee-a.

"I named my daughter Zaria. I pronounce it
ZAH-ree-a. People usually pronounce it correctly with a few exceptions. But they always spell it correctly once we pronounce it for them.

"My daughter is named 'Princess'Zaria. I choose the name for many reasons. I 1st fell in love with the name when i was younger. The TV show 'Parenthood' has a character with the name. After that I did my research of the true meaning of the name. I love the meaning and the land from which it originated. Another reason was because my mothers' name is Zora. So it seems a spin of my dear sweet mother." Jan. 20, 2007:
"My baby girls name is Zaaria, same meaning as Zaria but with an additional a for proper pronunciation. When my husband chose the name we found the meaning was "rose, beauty". It couldn't be more apt for my beautiful rose of a daughter." Jan. 12, 2007:
"My little rose's name is Zaria, she's just 5mths and seem to want to do lots more than her age. I chose it for several reasons being simply unique and easy to pronounce are the main ones. Easy to spell when shes now growing and fitting her charm as a little princess also makes it perfect. I get commended for my choice, and folks say its a lovely name." Jan. 3, 2007:
"Greetings! My daughter name is Zaria and she is 9 yrs old. I fell in love with the name a year before she was born and I found out from my Nigerian Doctor that there was a town in Nigeria, Africa named Zaria (btw, my daughter loves showing her friends her name on the globe). In any event, he told me the name meant, "small town, but big heart", and fell in more love with it since my child was born preemie. People often pronounce it wrong, like maria, they'll say zaria. We pronounce it the long way. (CZar-ria)I met one little girl with her name she was about 2yrs old and she was such a bright child for her age. Similiar to my little lady. I believe all zaria's have a star quality about them." Dec. 4, 2006:
