ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 137
Aaliyah is a variation of the name Aliyah, which means “rising” in Hebrew and “exalted or lofty” in Arabic. Other variations include Alia, Aleah, Aleia, Alya and Aliyya. (The latter is sometimes considered the feminine form of Ali, one of the 99 names of Allah in Islam.) Aaliyah is the most popular and preferred spelling of this name—and indelibly connected to hip-hop singer Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash in 2001 at age 22.
