Meaning of Isa

Isa, also spelled Eisa or Eesa, is the Arabic name for the prophet Jesus, son of Mary. Isa is not an Arabic name, rather, it is ancient Hebrew and means “God is salvation”. Isa is a good name and is a direct Quranic name for boys (mentioned 25 times in the Quran).

Muslims can also use the spelling Jesus (and its variants) if they so wish.

    I am called Isa as a feminine form of the Germanic male name Ise / Iso, meaning “ice” or “iron” (I am Dutch, and the name was also used by my greatgrandmother and her grandmother). It is not a shortened version of an other name. It is pronounced as Ee-sah.

    I don’t think the name isa is a Moslem form as thought but rather, got popular in Arabia during the time of apostle Paul stay in Arabia as he proclaimed the gospel to the Arabs. But as said by anonymous it is an ancient Hebrew name of the English Jesus.
