The meaning of Zia. 

Growing up in Scotland it was very rare to come across another Zia until an animated television series, ‘The mysterious cities of gold’ was shown when I was in primary school. Having such an unusual name it was intriguing to see the animation and to know that are more Zia’s out there. 

Zia is a name of Arabic Origin meaning enlightenment, light, glow and splendour.  The meaning associated to light initiated the lightbulb logo.   There were strong drivers in the development of the logo to be clean, clear and fun. 

As I started to explore the meaning of Zia I came across numerology for the first time and started to explore the meaning of Zia further.  This exploration identified many traits you see in my personality and my drive to succeed.  I’ve shared some further information from my findings below:

Numerology is not something I had any prior knowledge off, but as I explored a couple of articles I was surprised to recognise so many traits in myself.  There is a curious link to the work I do as an Executive coach.
