Full Meaning of Ezah

Ezah is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means young female gazelle. It is an ancient Arabic name that is derived from the AIN-Z-Z root (azaza, which means “it was dear”, “it was expensive”, “it was hard to get”), and they say that young female gazelles were called this because they were extremely hard to catch by hunters. The AIN-Z-Z root is mentioned in many places in the Quran and is the root for one of the 99 names of Allah: al-Azeez (The Almighty).

the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Almighty, the All-Forgiving! (Quran 38:66)

Our Lord! And make them enter the Gardens of Eden which thou hast promised them, with such of their fathers and their wives and their descendants as do right. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Almighty, the Wise. (Quran 40:8)
