Origin of the name ZIA.
Etymology of the name ZIA.
Meaning of the baby name ZIA.


ZIA (זִיעַ).  Biblical.  [Hebrew = "motion"].  A certain Gadite, resident in Bashan (1 Chron. v. 13). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

ZIA (ضياء).  Turkish name meaning "light."  It is the same as Arabic Diya (q.v.).  Also spelled Ziya.

... the late Zia Pacha was a clever satirist, and his caustic verses were relished by his friends and admirers.  Nor was the talent of this author confined to the exposure of the weaknesses of his enemies.  His poetry in general made him one of the most prominent Turkish writers of modern times.  His eulogies of the late Sultan Aziz, though tinged with that Oriental obsequiousness customary to Eastern writers, are nevertheless appreciated for their excellent versification.  But above all, his lyrical poetry and his verses devoted to the sufferings of a lover on being separated from his beloved, and generally his love songs, have with justice acquired for him a well-deserved fame. (Ottoman Literature: the Poets and Poetry of Turkey, Gibb, 1901)
