    Does Aria seem too young?

    I realised that Aria tends to sound much more like a child than an adult.

    Does Aria seem very child like to you as well? Or could it work well on a 20+ year old?

    I can see Aria aging well. There probably aren't a lot of adult Aria's NOW, but unlike a lot of the "new" names, this does not have that grating, awful "cutesy" sound to it. It's pretty and feminine but not in a cutesy or juvenile way.

    Yeah, Aria's usage really only started in the 20th century. I wonder if it'll end up being a dated kind of name like Jessica or Stephanie.

    I think it's ok. It's got the same feel to me as Ariana or Amelia, which I can easily picture on a teen, a middle-age working women, and an elderly women.

    It *might*, only time will tell, but I don't think it's a bad choice at all - just like in theory, Jessica and Stephanie are not bad names, they will likely make their way back around with our children's children, lol. That's the way of names, I believe they come around every 100 years or so.
