    It's beautiful! I can't remember but I have a feeling it might be the name of some magical land from a book I read when I was little. It does have a magical feel to it, very exotic and otherworldly and almost medieval. And so unique- I would love to meet an Arcadia.

    Moreso than the word arcade, I think of it (Arcadia) as the name of a fantasy world or place in a video game. I kinda like it, though not as much as Illyria and Astoria, which give me the same vibe.

    Arcadia is a beautiful name. I'm a bit confused about the meaning sated here on nameberry though; Arcadia was considered a paradise or Utopia, but it's name came from King Arcas who ruled the region. Arcas derives from the Greek word arkos which means bear (King Arcas was the son of Callisto by Zeus and later became the constellation Ursa Minor).

    But again, I love the name and did consider it very strongly for my daughter. I don't see arcade in it at all, I imagine freedom, forests, hunting parties and the most beautiful nature and bird song (quite the opposite of an arcade really).
