Meaning:happy, blessed; grey fighting maiden
Zella is a girl’s name and a unique choice for baby. While variants of Zella appear in numerous languages and cultures, it is most often associated with name Zelda, the feminine version of the Yiddish name Selig, meaning “happy” or “blessed.” Zelda is also a diminutive of the Germanic Griselda, which means “grey fighting maiden.” While the former meaning is a sweet reminder of the blessing baby is in your life, the latter will serve as an inspiration for the strong woman baby will grow to be.
