I have been blessed with a baby girl, I want to name her "Mashaim", please let me know meaning of this name and its origin. I have heard that the fragrant bareez that will flow in Jannah is called "Mashaim". Please also let me know if I have spelled it right or not. Jazak Allah.

I do not know of any name similar to Mashaim. The closest Arabic word is Mashaa'eem, which means "cursed people", "people who are not blessed". It is the plural of Mash'oom ("cursed", "not blessed"). Obviously this is not a good word to use as a name. But the Mashaim you are asking about might be a different word from another origin, and if it has a good meaning then you can use it.

    Dear all , Asalam o alikum
    You all might be correct in your thinking, but my point of view is that words in different languages are having different meanings . You can not say that it is an Arabic word or Latvian word. A name is actual a voice that you spell to call a person for his attention. Only the word “Allah” is having one meaning , that is having all the qualities , remaining you can have any name to any person. If I say Mashaim means Hoor , then no authentication is there to prove it , becauz it is a voice to call a person.
