Please give me the exact meaning of the name ZAFEERA. The same name is present in the Quran (In Al-Furqan) and gives the completely diefferent meaning.


This is an official answer by Staff

The word you are referring to زَفِيْر (zafeer), which is used in al-Furqan in verse 25:12. This is a different word from the names Zafeer and Zafeera. The one you are referring to starts with the letter zay, while the names start with the letter dhaa. In English both letters become "z" because there is no equivalent for dhaa, but there is no relationship between the word you are referring to and the names we mentioned, in English they look the same, but in Arabic they are completely different, as different as the words "moon" and "noon" in English.
