Characteristics of Jaliyah
Etymology & Historical Origin - Jaliyah
Jaliyah is yet another invented female name inspired by Aaliyah, a name of Arabic origin meaning “sublime, exalted.” In Hebrew, to make an “aliyah” is to go up toward God, or more simply, “to rise, ascend.” Aliyah also referred to the journey of the Jewish people to the Promised Land. However, Aaliyah became an ultra-popular name in the United States following first the popularity and then the tragic death of singer Aaliyah. After that, the “-iyah” suffix went gangbusters (especially within the African American community). Just consider the following examples of “-iyah” names inspired by Aaliyah: Amiyah, Aniyah, Jaliyah, Janiyah, Kaliyah, Laniyah, Maliyah, Samiyah, Saniyah, Sariyah, Taliyah, Taniyah, Zaniyah and Zariyah. When it comes to trends, this one appears to be a runaway train!
Popularity of the Name Jaliyah
Jaliyah first appeared on the American female naming charts in 2002 and she’s done remarkable well since then. As we pointed out above, these “-iyah” names are all the rage in some circles. They all seem to have three syllables with an upbeat, “lofty” sound to them, so we get the attraction. These names are all mostly invented, however, and by definition really don’t have any legitimate etymologies or meanings. They are just pretty sounding names – and so many from which to choose!
