Meaning:God is my salvation
Elisah is a gender-neutral name and form of the Hebrew Elisha, with the devoted meaning “God is my salvation.” The Hebrew Bible and the Qur’an mention the prophet Elisha of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, a follower of Elijah and advisor to many kings. Venerated as a saint, Elisha is highly regarded across many Christian denominations to this day for his generous and loving influence on Earth. The spelling Elisa is particularly favored across Scandinavian countries, with Elisah’s relocated “h” keeping the title especially connected to its original root. A testimony to one’s faith, Elisah gives breathing room for baby to be their own marvelous person while nodding to their spirituality.
