Assalam o Alaikum everyone.... I read quran nowadays and found a name for baby girl from surah maryam, but didn't find the name in the list..the name is Insiya.please tell me the correct meaning of this name..JazakAllah


This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Insiya is mentioned at the end of verse 19:26, and it  means "a member of mankind". The actual word is Insiy, the -a at the end is added only for rhyming, it is not part of the word.

Insiya is an acceptable name and is used mostly for girls. It can be considered a direct Quranic name it is mentioned directly in the Quran.

Eat and drink and rejoice. And if you see any human being say, “I have vowed a fast [of silence] to the Gracious God, and will not speak with any human being today.” (Quran 19:26)
