Full Meaning of Aliah

Aliah is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means high, sublime. It is the feminine form of the name Ali. It is derived from the AIN-L-A root which is used often in the Quran and is the root for two of the 99 names of Allah: al-Ali and al-Muta`aali. 

He is the knower of the unseen and the visible, the Great, the Most-Exalted. (13:9)

We granted them Our mercy and bestowed on them true and high renown. (Quran 19:50)

If you do not succour the Apostle, then [know that God will do so -just as] God succoured him at the time when those who were bent on denying the truth drove him away, [and he was but] one of two: when these two were [hiding] in the cave, [and] the Apostle said to his companion, “Grieve not: verily, God is with us.” And thereupon God bestowed upon him from on high His (gift of] inner peace, and brought utterly low the cause of those who were bent on denying the truth, whereas the cause of God remained supreme: for God is almighty, wise. (Quran 9:40)
