    Responding to commment —
    “I have named my daughter as Aaniya Anum, but now I came to know that meaning of Aaniya in surah Ghashiyah verse no 5 is not good to name a girl child. Please suggest whether I should change my daughter name or to continue”. In Sarah Gashiya is hamza nūn yā (أ ن ي). Wheres the name here is from ʿayn wāw nūn (ع و ن). like is Surah Fatriah from the verse Iyyaka naAAbudu wa-iyyaka nastaAAeen. NastaAAeen meaning help/assistance. where as in Gashiya āniyatin means boiling. JK.

    Sorry to say that but the meanings does not much
    For example the verse in 2:45 means completely another و استعينوا doesn’t come from aanyah but istaana and the meaning of aaniyah means the boiling hot water in Jahannam
    And or the plates of jannah
    Naming your daughter a boiled water or a plate is not a good name that can be given to a person subha Allah

    My name is Anya,which is a variation of Aniyah and I find it is a very beautiful name.
