    Waqia is an Arabic name for girls that means “protector”. It is derived from the W-Q-Y Quranic root, therefore it is a Quranic name. Waqia is pronounced [(WA)nt] + [Ira(Q) + L(I)] + [(YU)mmy] with emphasis on the first syllable.

    If you live in the West, we suggest that you do not use the name Waqia due to its similarity to the English word “wackier”, which doesn’t have a good meaning.
