Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

Naylufar is the Arabic pronunciation of the Persian word Neelufar, which refers to the flower known as "Egyptian lotus" in English, also called "water lily". The original word is Persian. It is not an Islamic name but you can use it since it has a good meaning. You can use either Naylufar or Neelufar, whichever one you like more.

Naylufar is pronounced [(NAI)l] + [p(L)ay + s(OO)n] + [(FU)n + p(R)ay] with emphasis on the first syllable. It is written as نَيْلُوْفَر in Arabic and can also be written as Neilufar, Nayloofar, Naylofar, Neilufer in English. The original Persian word, Neelufar, is pronounced [(NEE)d] + [p(L)ay + s(OO)n] + [(FU)n + p(R)ay] with emphasis on the first syllable. It is written as نيلوفر in Persian and can also be written as Nilufar, Neelofar, Nilufer in English.

For Nuralain please see: Nuralain

Feryal is the Arabic pronunciation of the Persian word Faryal, which is formed from Far (greatness, glory) and yal (neck). The literal meaning is "one with a beautiful neck", and this is used as an idiom for "beautiful woman" and "woman with a beautiful voice". It is not an Islamic name but Muslims can use it since the meaning is good. The Arabic version, Feryal, is pronounced [(FI)lm + p(R)ay] + [(YA)rn + p(L)ay] with emphasis on the second syllable. It is written as فِرْيَال in Arabic and can also be written as Firyal, Firyaal, Feryaal in English. The Persian version, Faryal, is pronounced [(FU)n + p(R)ay] + [(YA)rn + p(L)ay] with emphasis on the second syllable. It is written as فريال in Persian and can also be written as Faryaal, Farryal, Farryaal in English.

    Every where else on the internet it seems to say Faryal means an Angel..? Am I correct as this is the first time I have heard of a different meaning for this name?
