LÊ'ÂH > LEAH
hebrew (לֵאָה)

This name derives from the Hebrew “lê'âh”, Ancient Greek “Leíā (Λείᾱ)”, meaning “weary, tired”. Leah was the daughter of Laban, first wife of Jacob, and mother of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Dinah. Saint Lea is a third-century saint in the Roman Catholic Church on the authority of Jerome about whom little is definitively known. The church father Saint Jerome, in a letter to Saint Marcella, said that she was a widow who retired to a Roman convent of consecrated virgins, where she became the prioress.
