Origin & Meaning
The meaning of Yesenia is "Watchful, (s)he sees".
In the Old Testament, Iscah or Yiskah, is the name of Abraham's niece.
The name is the basis for the English name Jessica.
The BDB Theological Dictionary considers the etymology "dubious".
NOBS Study Bible Name List derives the meaning from a verb that does not appear in the scriptures, the verb sakkah (סכה) which means to look at and translates the name to mean "watchful".
Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names also derives the names' meaning from the verb sakkah (סכה) and translates the meaning as "she will see" or "she will look out".
