Leah is a Baby Girl Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Leah.

Leah has a downer of a meaning, “weary,” and it’s no wonder. In the Bible, Jacob really wanted to marry Rachel but was tricked into marrying her sister Leah instead. Wouldn’t you be “weary” too if that happened to you? Eventually, Leah went on to give birth to six children who would be the ancestors of the tribes of Isreal. Despite it’s somewhat morose origins, Leah has emerged as a very popular girl name choice. If Leah is too common a spelling for you, try the Star Wars-ian Leia, instead.
