Usually a surname of Asian origin, meaning 'very important person'. The name can be traced to a single family of national importance in Ceylon in the late 19th century. This version deviates slightly in both spelling and pronunciation from that of others such as 'Selliah'.

The name 'Sellayah' has belonged to royalty, ambassador's, politicians, public officials and sportspersons.
