The Arabic name Nuha means wisdom.It is also the name of an ancient preIslamic diety - sun goddess.Please recommend whether or not this name can be used for a girl now that we know it has two meanings and references.


This is an official answer by Staff

The modern meaning of Nuha is wisdom. The fact that it is also the name of a goddess does not make the name a bad name. For more information please see this answer about Nayla, which is also a goddess name that was used as a name by many Sahabiyaat: Is Nayla not a good name for a girl? Does it refer to a false god?
