Ola is a gender-neutral name with many meanings just waiting to be unraveled. Of Old Norse origin, it's a slight trim off the name Olaf, meaning "ancestor's descendant" or "ancestor's relic." It may also take inspiration from the Yoruba word ola, which signifies "wealth," "honor," or "respect." A possible nickname for Aleksandra, the Polish version of Alexander, Ola might even translate to "man's defender."
