  1. Aiga a.k.a. ‘aiga is a word in the Samoan language which means 'family.' The ʻaiga is the family unit of Samoan society and differs from the Western sense in that it consists of more than just a mother, father and children. The Samoan family, also referred to as an 'extended family' is based on the culture's communal socio-political organisation. ʻAiga consists of a wider family group of blood and marriage or even adopted connections who all acknowledge the matai. Such a matai is a titled person, either a chief or an orator whose particular duty is the leadership and care of the family under their control, and who is entitled to the services and co-operation of all members of their family in return for leadership. In Samoan custom relationship may be claimed through female as well as male ancestors.Samoans may belong to many families or different ʻaiga since a woman marrying into another family confers on all her blood descendants membership of her own.
  2. Aiga is a Latvian language feminine given name, the most popular such name descended from Livonian language origins. Several names have descended from Aiga, among them being Aigis, Aigija, Aigins, Aigisa, and Aigita. The first recorded use of this name was in 1940 in Riga. The use of the name peaked in the 1970s and has declined since then.
