    I have the same name, and I have been trying to find the direct meaning for a while, it just has been hard because mine is spelt ‘Allaa’, along with some other people I know. I just thought I should let viewers know that these aren’t the only way to spell names, you should spell them the way you want to, and there isn’t always a direct way to spell a name in English.
