Meaning of Araya: The name comes from her mother’s maiden name “Arayavilaiphong.” The word “araya” can be translated as “noble”, and is used to designate a spiritual warrior or hero. It is someone who is worthy, respectable and honorable. Araya is named after her mother who exemplified these qualities as a respectable, honest and compassionate person which will be emulated through this practice.
