The name Arius (pronounced AIR-EE-us) is a Latinized Greek name that means ‘Of Ares’ or ‘Warlike’ – as Ares was the god of war. The original ancient Greek name was Areios.

Arius was also the name of a Christian elder in post-classical history, they named Arianism after him. He was also known as Arius the Heretic.

Names such as Eris, Cilix, Zephyr, Maccius and Theros remind me of Arius.
