Leia

The name Leia is universally synonymous with a certain princess of the Star Wars saga, but its origins hark back to biblical times, when Leia was the first wife of Jacob and the mother of six of his children. Though it acquired a more contemporary spelling —Leah— this Hebrew namesake evinces a sense of ideal femininity. Since the early 2000s, it has gained momentum among baby-namers, and perhaps with a new generation of George Lucas fans.
