Everywhere I've looked, it says it's a Hebrew or Assyrian name, meaning "weary," "ruler," or Hawaiian, "heavenly flowers," "child of heaven." Hawaii is part of America, which speaks English, so yes, maybe?
It depends, if its meant to be the same as Leah just spelled differently, then its a hebrew name. Going by the spelling alone however, its hawwiian.
