The name Aaliyah is the Arabic word meaning "exalted or held in high regard." The first spike in the name's popularity came in 2002, the year after 22-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah lost her life in a plane crash. The next big spike in the name's popularity came a decade later, in 2012, right after the 10th anniversary of the beloved artist's death.
