Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Isaias

Isaias is the Late Latin and Spanish form of the Hebrew name Isaiah and used in some versions of the Bible. Isaiah was one of the most important of the Major Prophets in the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible. The name comes from Hebrew “Yeshayahu” meaning ‘God is salvation.’ Isaiah’s prophesies are important to the Christians since they believe he foretells the coming of the Messiah. They are important to the Jews since Isaiah prophesized that the Children of Israel would be exiled from their homeland but assured them that God would not forget them and would bring them back to their Promised Land. Isaiah has long been established as a Jewish name, and also one taken up by the Puritans in the 17th century. As the Late Latin form, Isaias may be considered less Jewish and more Christian. Isaías is also the Spanish form of Isaiah (rendered with an accent mark).
