Gender: F Meaning of Ara: "king" Origin of Ara: Armenian

Simple and yet distinctive, Ara is a mythological name of a famously handsome king. Although it originated as a boys' name, in the contemporary US, it was used seven times as often for girls in one recent year -- 49 to 7.

Ara was one of the many vowel-heavy three-syllable names popular at the end of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth--it went as high as Number 481 in 1884.

It's also used as a nickname for Arabella.
