    Depends, because then it won’t have the same meaning as the name Sanaya, as “Shanaya” is a completely different name with completely different origins and meaning to Sanaya. Shanaya (or Shania, pronounced the same despite the spelling) is a Native American name which means “I’m on my way”. However, it’s acceptable to name a Muslim child this as the names meaning is not bad.

    I hope i helped sister!
