Here’s a baby name you won’t want to let go! Though now a personification of empowering self-acceptance, Elsa first founds its mark as a feminine variation of the Hebrew name Elizabeth. With Hebrew, German, and Swiss origins, Elsa means "God is my oath," and will bolster baby’s connection to their faith. You’ll also find many Elsas in Switzerland, particularly due to the close ties between German and Swiss culture, where Swiss German is the most widely spoken language. Plus, thanks to Disney’s _Frozen_, Elsa now exhibits the merits of embracing the self. A testament to devotion in all its forms, Elsa is a wonderful way of reminding baby that staying true to themselves is the surest way to receive all of life's blessings.
