The name Deia is a girl's name meaning "joy; goddess".
Sam Branson (son of businessman Sir Richard Branson) and his wife put this pretty place name on the baby name map when they called their daughter Eva-Deia in 2015. Their inspiration was the
beautiful bohemian village of Deià in Mallorca, where the Branson family has a luxury residence.
The name could also be considered a variant spelling of Latin Dea, meaning “goddess”, or of Daya/Daia, meaning “joy”.
