Eimaan is one of the highest status Quranic names for girls and one of the central concepts of Islam. It is mentioned directly dozens of times in the Quran. Eimaan means faith in Allah. It means to accept the truth of Islam in the heart. Some examples of Quranic mentions:

And [so,] when the believers saw the Con­federates [advancing against them], they said, “This is what God and His Apostle have promised us!”- and, “Truly spoke God and His Apostle!” and all this but increased their faith and their readiness to surrender themselves unto God. (Quran 33:22 – Surat al-Ahzab)

And thus, too, [O Muhammad,] have We revealed unto thee a life-giving message, [coming] at Our behest. [Ere this message came unto thee,] thou didst not know what revelation is, nor what faith [implies]: but [now] We have caused this [message] to be a light, whereby We guide whom We will of Our ser­vants: and, verily, [on the strength thereof] thou, too, shalt guide [men] onto the straight way. (Quran 42:52 – Surat ash-Shura)
