Meaning:He sees, God beholds
Jessa is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin. Meaning “God beholds” or “He sees,” this eye-catching name is a diminutive of the popular feminine name Jessica. Short and sweet, Jessa shares a length, sound, and meaning with Jessica’s more common nicknames of Jessy and Jessie, but has the distinction of being a little more unusual. It is, therefore, a great choice if you love the name Jessica but want baby to stand out on the playground.
