Origin:German
Meaning:God's helmet
Zelma is a girl’s name of German origin. Possibly a variant of Anselma or Selma, it’s interpreted as “God’s helmet.” It’s also quite possible that Zelma Davis, the multi-award-winning, Liberan-born American musician, helped put this moniker on the map with her popular dance hits. Whether you like grooving to a fellow Liberian’s tunes or you’d want to keep baby out of harm’s way, you can take comfort in Zelma either way.
