Meaning of Sanaya

Sanaya (not to be confused with Sanayah) is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means noble and honorable. It is derived from the S-N-A (flash of light, sublime, superb) root which is used in Chapter 24 of the Quran:

Do you not see that Allah drives clouds? Then He brings them together, then He makes them into a mass, and you see the rain emerge from within it. And He sends down from the sky, mountains [of clouds] within which is hail, and He strikes with it whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills. The flash of its lightening almost takes away the eyesight. (Quran 24:43)
