Amaya, which means “night rain” in Japanese and is also a spelling variation of a Basque name, with echoes of the popular Amelia and Maya, has been a Top 400 name since 1999, and is now at Number 215. When Mariska Hargitay chose it for her newly adopted daughter, she said, “Amaya sounded so open and feminine and beautiful, just like her.”
