From the experts:
This variation of Aryan has a slightly less racist connotation, making it a bit more acceptable. Arian has only been in the US Top 1000 since 2011, but it already seems to be on its way back out. After peaking at Number 537 in 2013, it was back down to Number 745 in 2016. This downward trend is likely due to the Aryan connection and the popularity of all things Aria among girls.
