  1. But his name is spelled “elishah” and it’s in the Bible once love the name and how unique it is

  2. I love the name Elisha but thinking of naming my baby girl?

  3. I did not look up the meaning Elisha on the internet. I looked up who Elisha was in the Bible and decided On that name.

  4. Elisha was a man in the Bible. God protected him with an invisible Army of angels with chariots of fire. I was in a car accident at 29 weeks pregnant and had no injuries at all when my mother almost died and the lady we hit passed away. My baby was protected by God, so we named him Elisha.
