Meaning:Rational; My God is an oath
Lyrical and soft sounding, the name Illissa will most certainly capture baby’s ethereal presence. Boasting strong Greek roots, Illissa has a selection of variations such as Alyssa or Elissa and means “rational.” In Greek mythology, Elissa, also known as Dido, is believed to have founded the Phoenician city-state of Carthage. She was also the first queen of the city, which might encourage baby to take charge and forge their own path. Ultimately, Illissa is derived from the Biblical moniker Elisábet, which means “my God is an oath,” making for a fitting choice for those hoping to raise baby in their faith.
