Sefa is a feminine Dutch name derived from the Hebrew Yehôsêph, meaning “Yahweh will give or increase.” Sefa can be found in many languages, including those of Eastern Africa as a short form of the masculine Sefania, from the Hebrew tsephanyâh, meaning “God has hidden.” This root is shared by the Croatian Sefanija and the Dutch, Finnish, and Swedish Sefanja, given to boys. Sefa is also a girl’s name of Old Norse origin, meaning “gentle,” “calm,” and “leisurely.” Sefa carries an understated elegance and is the perfect example of minimalism done well—a worthy name for your new addition.
