My name is Fariya. I have always heard that this name doesnt have a proper meaning.i read the explanation on the name fariyal...does fariya also mean the same?


This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Fariya can refer the Arabic word فريّة, which means "strange", "unheard of", "terrible". This is not a good meaning. However, it can also refer to the Arabic name فريعة, which means "tall, slim woman", "woman with beautiful long hair", which is the name of many Sahabiyyat (female peers of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him). You can read more about this name here: Fareea.

Thus your name can be another spelling of the name Fareea, which is a good Islamic name.

Your name has no relationship with Fariyal.
