Mahalia Meaning and Origin
Mahalia is a girl’s name meaning “tenderness” and is of Hebrew origin. A cross between two biblical names: Mahali (Exodus 6:19) and Mahalah (1 Chronicles 7:18). This name is borne by several characters in the Bible including Mahalah, the granddaughter of Manasseh, Joseph’s first-born son, and Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael, son of Hagar. The name is also possibly derived from Hebrew mā’lu > machlâh, meaning “weary, weak, sick”.
