While it may sound similar to "Aliyah" as previous commented noted, its origins are actually not Arabic or Hebrew, but Slavic. It's a Russian form of Scarlet. "Alla" is a variation of "Allaya", which means, literally, "scarlet".

Value, origin. Alla in translation from ancient Arabic - "letter", from ancient Greek - "revival", from gothic - "another". Presumably the name has the German origin, but its exact meaning is not established.

Some ethnic groups viewed Alla as the goddess of the sun, but more often she acted as the goddess of a planet of Venus, was identified with Aphrodite. Obviously, Alla was also the goddess of clouds and lightnings, she was related to war. In Nabatee and Palmira she was identified with Aphina.

Her images are portrayed as a goddess-warrior in a helmet and with a spear in the right hand, and sometimes - sitting on a throne among lions. In the city of Taif Alla was worshipped as its patroness. There were her sacred territories, a temple and an idol - a white granite stone with ornaments. Having destroyed Taif's sanctuary, prophet Mohammed was forbidden to hunt and cut trees in this territory.
