Name Elysia, origin Greek, meaning "struck by lightning":

Scroll down: Etymology: Elysium is an obscure name that evolved from a designation of a place or person struck by lightning, enelysion, enelysios.

The following site gives both meanings (from Elysium, and from Elisabeth):

But this site gives more interesting possibilities:
Elysia - Meaning of the name:
[ 4 syll. e-ly-sia, el-ys-ia ] The girl name Elysia is pronounced ahLIHZHiyah or ahLIYZHah †. Elysia has its origins in the Germanic, Hebrew, and Old Greek languages. It is used largely in the English language. From Old Greek roots, its meaning is 'blissful'. In Roman and Greek mythology, the Latin Elysium or Greek Elysion was the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous; this was a pagan concept associated with the Christian Heaven. Elysia could be derived as the feminine form of this name. It could also be from Alicia, Elizabeth, or the combination of Elise and Alicia:
