Vala is a feminine name of primarily German origin infused with mystical energy.

Those searching for a higher meaning for the mythical-sounding name may just find it in the Old Norse word vǫlva. Meaning "prophetess" or "seeress," vǫlva was once the given name of an ancient shaman or spiritual leader revered in Viking society—a chosen one indeed.
