How to write Fatima in the original language, such as Arabic or Persian

This is NOT a Quranic name, but Muslims can use it since it doesn't have a bad meaning.

Meaning of Fatima

Fatima is the name of Prophet Muhammad’s daughter, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his family and companions.  The meaning of Fatima is a child who has been weaned off breast milk. The linguists of the Arabic language aren’t certain why this word is used as a name. It is not mentioned in the Quran, whether directly or indirectly. But since it is the name of the Prophet’s daughter, Muslims consider it a high-status name.

    It is also a popular name for Catholics in Latin America (for much different reasons). They pronounce it “FAT-ima.” In the U.S., that version of the name is much more common. I grew up having to correct how people pronounced my name. But it is a lovely one.
