    Its such a adorable name.
    Why change it!
    And remember it is the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) miraculous night journey from Mecca to Jerusalem during one night.
    In that context the meaning is good too. Because it is linked to that special journey – Not just any night journey.

    Dear Israa’s father,
    hope you are doing well, actually the meaning of Esraa or Israa is journey in the night for holy and spiritual reason not any night journey, actually my name is Esraa and I am very proud of it, its much more better than Ishra to me.

    warm regards,
    Esraa Rayyan
