Deja comes from the French phrase déjà vu, which means "already seen," and describes a feeling that a new situation has already happened, or that you feel like you have been somewhere before where you know you have never been. Deja became used as a name in the mid-20th century. Its use as a name could be influenced by the Steely Dan album "Aja" which rhymes with Deja.
