"Leah"

"Leah" means "weary" in Hebrew after being featured in the Biblical story of Leah, Jacob, and Rachel in Genesis (somewhere 'round Genesis 30). It could've possibly meant "cow" (motherhood) and/or "gazelle" (gracefulness, litheness) in Aramaic before being featured in the Bible. In Assyrian, it means "mistress, ruler." Alternative spellings: Leigha, Lea, Lia, Leia (name derived from Leah) :P Leah Estelle.
