Is your baby girl an answer to your prayers? Naming her Elia would be a beautiful way of showing it. A Spanish/Italian variation of the Hebrew name Eliana, the name means, “God has answered.” It comes from the Hebrew name Elijah and can be used for a boy or a girl, though the name definitely sounds more feminine. It would be a great choice for honoring a Sephardic Jewish heritage.
