ariya

SHORT FORM OF:
aryanna, aryana
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
ARI- HAGNóS / ADNóS > ARIANē > ARIáDNē
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ARI- (ἀρι) HAGNóS (ἁγνός) ADNóS (ἀδνός) ARIáDNē (Ἀριάδνη)
MEANING:
This name is of Ancient Greek name “Ariádnē (Ἀριάδνη)”, composed of two elements: “ari- (ἀρι)” (strengthening prefix, generally with a sense of goodness, excellence) plus “hagnós (ἁγνός) adnós (ἀδνός)” (pure, chaste, holy, sacred, purifying). In turn, the name means “very sacred, very pure, pure one”. In Greek mythology, she was the daughter of Minos King of Crete, and his queen Pasiphaë, daughter of Helios, the Sun-titan. She is mostly associated with mazes and labyrinths, due to her involvement in the myths of the Minotaur and Theseus. It was also a general geographical term used by some Greek and Roman authors of the ancient period for a district of wide extent in central Asia, composing part of the Persian kingdom, all of Afghanistan, Iran, Tajikistan, and Pakistan. Ariane fell in love with Theseus and helped him out of the maze by giving him a long ball of yarn. Abandoned by Theseus, she was then married to Dionysus. Saint Ariadne of Phrygia († 130 AD) is a 2nd-century Christian saint. According to legend, she was a slave in the household of a Phrygian prince.

Numerological Values:

A number 9 person is humane and selfless. Compassion, tolerance, idealism and sensitivity are the hallmarks of number 9. Number 9 individuals often give unselfishly to others.

Chakra Number:
9: The number of the Chakra "Pineal Gland"

The Pineal Gland is about the size of a pea, and is in the center of the brain in a tiny cave behind and above the pituitary gland which lies a little behind the root of the nose. It is located directly behind the eyes, attached to the third ventricle. This chakra is also known as the upper dan tien. The ninth chakra is an interesting chakra in that it is in this chakra that all the Christ abilities lie dormant, waiting to be released and used in the outer and inner worlds. The shift in focus at this time is toward that Christ energy and the accompanying abilities that go along with it. Hence, a great deal of work and energy is now being sent into physical reality to help the individual open up and expand this energy center.

Color meaning:

It is no surprise that gold symbolizes wealth used wisely, but it is also the symbol of good health. People who favor the color gold are optimistic. The Tibetan Buddhist believes in 5 sacred stones: the crystal for light, turquoise for infinity of sea and sky, coral for life and form, gold for the golden ray of the sun, silver for the light of the moon. Gold is intimately linked with Divinity and those gods associated with the Sun. It symbolizes wealth and success.
