    Its an indirect quranic name… as its not mention in any surah.. but its the name of the first surah in Quran.. it came from arabic word ‘iftah’… which means ‘’ to open’’ …

    I named my daughter Fatihah because she is my first born,the opener of my womb, my very first child. for me that’s pretty special and sentimental. but also it is the name of the first surah of the Quran, the opening chapter, which is a big deal. it is basically a dua to Allah taught to mankind by Allah Himself. your name is as special as your parents say it is.
