Puerto Rican Arias from New York here. They say it was a Jewish name before they were converted to Catholicism. My aunt did a DNA test that indicates many of us came from Northern Morocco as Moors. Small world.

Hola. Soy de Colombia. Mi Papa se llamaba Cornelio Arias, fallecio hace 5 años. Bueno a lo que vinimos. La historia de la familia Arias por mi parte de sangre. Mi abuelo se llamaba Antonio Arias vivio en la region del Valle del Cauca la mayor parte de su vida, me contaron que en su niñes vivio en la parte de Antioquia anteriormente llamada Viejo Caldas con mi bisabuelo (su nombre no lo tengo presente en el momento), y se dice que mi bisabulo fue uno de los colonizadores de esa region colombiana y que venia de España. Hace bastante tiempo hablando con mi hermana al respecto, ella me conto que segun lo que ella averiguo quizas el nombre Arias venga del Aria o Ariah Arabe de una descendencia muy antigua. y segun parece por lo que he leido, parese ser que es una sangre bastante mezclada.
