Daria (also written as Darya) is the female variant of the ancient name of Persian origin Darius (from Persian: داريوش ‎ Dariush, IPA: , Old Persian "Darayavaus"), probably meaning "he who hold the good". Daria is a saint of the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. In today's Persian, Darya can also mean "sea".

The name has been used extensively in Russia and other Slavic countries. The common Russian nickname is Dasha. It has sometimes also been seen as a Russian form of the name Dorothy.
