    Waalaykumus salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu!

    Daniyah literally means near or close in the Arabic language.

    It is indeed a Muslim name and is mentioned directly in the Qur’an.

    Allaah said:
    قُطُوۡفُهَا دَانِيَةٌ‏
    “…the clusters of whose fruit will be hanging low to be within reach (of the inmates of Paradise)”
    [Surat al-Haqqah:23]

    Hope this helps!
