Meaning:God has answered; My God is Yahweh
If you prayed to your God that one day you would be fortunate enough to have a little one by your side and now that dream’s a reality, congratulations! Originating from Hebrew and derivation from the popular name Eliyanah , the gender-neutral name Elia means “God has answered.” Just like the meaning of this charming name, this name can be a great choice if you see baby as an answer to your wishes. Elia can also serve as a short version of Elijah, translating to "My God is Yahweh." Elia is a wonderful way to celebrate your faith with baby, with a twist.
