    Since the name is originally Arabic, then another way to write the name Nayel is “Naell” please make this addition…Thanks.

    Can the spelling of “Niel” be used instead and would the meaning be the same?

    Can I spell my child’s name as Niyel, which makes it easy to pronounce

    I am interested with this name. I asked one of my Arab friend the meaning of نائل , but she said there is no such word in Arabic. Would you explain this? I like this name so badly and want to be very sure about the meaning. Thank you
