Alessia is a Baby Girl Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Alessia.

The name Alessia is a girl's name of Italian origin meaning "defending warrior". Young Canadian pop singer Alessia Cara has given this spicy-sounding name a new lease on life, propelling it into the Top 1000 in 2016. (It was one of the year's fastest-rising girls' names.) The main risk is that it feels so close to Alexa, Alicia, Alexis and Alyssa-- all becoming overused -- that it could be mistaken for one of those more familiar names.
