Meaning of Aliyya

Aliyya 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)

    You missed the spelling Aliya. It’s very common compared to many of the ones above with u or o or I in the beginning.
