Though this biblical name means “tired and weary,” parents are actually finding it a fresh alternative to other biblical names like Rachel and Rebecca. To us, Leah has a warm and soothing ring, so we’ll look at “tired” from that standpoint. Jews started using it in the Middle Ages, but it wasn’t a common Christian name until the Puritans started using it after the Protestant Reformation. Since then it has remained relatively popular and started really rising in the ’50s, with major spikes recently.
From the Hebrew name לֵאָה (Le'ah) which was probably derived from the Hebrew word לְאָה (le'ah) meaning "weary".

Although this name was used by Jews in the Middle Ages, it was not typical as an English Christian name until after the Protestant Reformation, being common among the Puritans.
