    Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

    Izzah means “greatness”, “majesty”. It is a good meaning and can be used as a name. All names in Islam are acceptable unless there is a clear and valid proof that it is forbidden, and there is no such proof for the name Izzah. Azeez is a name from the same root and is quite common among Muslims.

    I am not an Alimah or scholar.

    However, from as much knowledge as I have, I believe that it is the names of Allah SWT that cannot be used without adding Abdul (for boys) and Ammatul (for girls) in the beginning. These are attributes of Allah SWT which must be regarded as His own.

    The word ‘izzah’ or ‘izzaa’ is just a word that refers to the honour and glory that He chooses to bestow upon His slave, on those whom He pleases. Subhan’Allah.

    Therefore, there should be no hesitation in using this word as a name for a person.
