Originally meant 'to see, he sees'. The English equivalent is Jessica.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Akiva Brest: Yiskah is Jessica and is Sarah, Abraham's wife. Yiskah is from the root Sukah, to be enwrapped. It state in the bible commentary at the end of Noah in that all were enwrapped in Sarah's beauty.

  -> Well, I am afraid you are wrong: the root s-k-h (sukah is not a root but a noun) doesn't mean to be enwrapped but to be covered (as in 'sheltered'), hence the sukah of Sukkoth, skhakha, le-sokhekh etc.
