Is your username after Arya from the Eragon series, it is spelled the exact same way. You don't have to answer if you don't want to.
Actually it's from Game of Thrones. I have read that series by Christopher P. and enjoyed it immensely, but to me, the Arya in the Eragon books was just to distant for me to love. Arya always struck me as a beautiful name, and a name that works on both elves and humans.
