Liza Origin and Meaning

The name Liza is a girl's name of Hebrew origin.
Liza's heyday was the mid-1970s, following on the heels of super-popular sister Lisa. But thanks to the fact that it never became superpopular, Liza remains a name not especially tied to one generation or style.

At one time, the name was closely associated with Liza Minnelli, who was named by her mother Judy Garland after a George Gershwin song. Today, it's the name of the lead character, played by Sutton Foster, in TV's Younger, based on a novel by Nameberry cofounder Pamela Redmond.
