Aria is a name that has multiple meanings and different origins around the world, from Greek mythology to Latin, Italy, Persia, and Albania. Aria means "song" or "melody" in Italian. Its literal translation is "air," and it is a musical term that refers to an intricate vocal solo usually found within a larger piece of music, generally an opera. In Albanian, Ari(a) means 'treasure' or 'gold', 'of high value'. Aria means "lioness" in Greek while in Persian, Aria is a gender-neutral name that means "noble" or “honorable.” The Persian version is common among male children as well and is also used in Indian, Hindi, and Malayalam.
In Greek mythology, Aria is a woman in Crete who, with Apollo, bore a son named Miletos. Aria is also the name of a Roman martyr about whom very little is known. Aria is quite commonly used in recent times like in the name Aria Montgomery, a character from ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, based on the series of books by Sara Shepard
The name Rayna is a girl's name of Hebrew origin meaning "song of the Lord". This spelling of the name has ties to Hebrew, Slavic, and Scandinavian cultures, in addition to being another alternative to Reina and Reyna. It is most recently attached to the hit television show Nashville's Rayna Jaymes, played by Connie Britton.
Rayna is also a transcription of a Bulgarian female name (Райна) which is equivalent to the Latin Regina meaning “queen”. The words “queen” and “Regina” developed from two different language families: Germanic (English) and Italic (Latin), respectively. “Regina” is the female form of “Rex” (Latin for king). Rayna is also a Japanese name that insinuates “bell + name/fame/celebrated” to eventually mean a child of fanfare or a child as beautiful as a ringing bell
A madrigal is a secular vocal music composition of the Renaissance (15th–16th c.) and early Baroque (1600–1750) eras. As written by Italianized Franco-Flemish composers in the 1520s, the madrigal partly originated from the three-to-four voice frottola (1470–1530); partly from composers' renewed interest in poetry written in vernacular Italian; partly from the stylistic influence of the French chanson; and from the polyphony of the motet (13th–16th c.).
Artistically, the madrigal was the most important form of secular music in Italy, and reached its formal and historical zenith in the later 16th century, when the madrigal also was taken up by German and English composers, such as John Wilbye (1574–1638), Thomas Weelkes (1576–1623), and Thomas Morley (1557–1602) of the English Madrigal School (1588–1627).
The name Madrigal is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "song for unaccompanied voices".
Madrigal might be a very unique option for a child of a musical family or for the parent looking for a less conventional path to the nickname Maddie than Madeline or Madison. Definitely more striking than Cadence or even the increasingly popular Aria.
The word madrigal refers both to a medieval short lyrical poem and a form of vocal chamber music that originated in the Italian Renaissance. And on a completely different note, you may have heard it on the TV show Breaking Bad as the name of an industrial conglomerate.
Tehila also spelled Tehilla or Tehillah, is a Hebrew feminine name meaning "glory" or "praise". It is derived from the Hebrew word Tehillah meaning "praise, song or hymn of praise", which itself is derived from Halal meaning "to shine; to praise, boast, be boastful". Some popular people with the name include Tehila Hakimi (born 1982), Israeli author and poetess, Tehilla Blad (born 1995), Swedish actress, singer, swimmer, and ballet dancer and Tehilla Lichtenstein (1893–1973), co-founder and leader of Jewish Science.
The viola is a string instrument that is bowed, plucked, or played with varying techniques. Slightly larger than a violin, it has a lower and deeper sound. Since the 18th century, it has been the middle or alto voice of the violin family, between the violin (which is tuned a perfect fifth above) and the cello (which is tuned an octave below). The strings from low to high are typically tuned to C3, G3, D4, and A4. The word viola originates from the Italian language.
As a name, Viola is a girl's name of Italian, Latin origin meaning "violet". Viola has several positive elements going for it: the rhythm of the musical instrument, the association with the flower, the trending 'Vi' beginning, and its leading role in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
