Meanings and history of the name Aja

Aja- Meaning "forest goddess" from Greek Mythology.

I have found several different origins for the history of the name Aja or Ajah. I have seen it being originating from the Old Testament Genesis and the Chronicles. I have seen it having been found to be of African and Indian origin. The meaning differs from strong willed, stubborn, unconquerable, to drive or propel meaning to lead and the meaning that will come up often is goat (Hindu). I am not sure what a goat signifies, but this is the knowledge that I have gained on the name Ajah.
