Maisa is a girl’s name of primarily Portuguese origin and a possible combination of Maria and Luisa. Looking into its Hebrew roots reveals a little more about its shared etymology with Mary, which means “bitterness” or “beloved.” Its ties to the Germanic name Louise, however, might lead you to meanings like “glorious in battle” or “famous warrior.” Some have also suggested a simple translation of “table,” probably based on the similar-sounding Spanish word mesa. But give it time, and your tot will figure out just what Maisa means to them.
