Anzila seems to be used in Urdu with the meaning you mentioned, for this reason since that's what you meant by it, it is an acceptable name and inshAllah you can keep it without a problem. Anzila is not standard Arabic but it still keeps the meaning of "sent down", "Allah sent down", the same way that Zidan is not standard Arabic but it keeps the meaning of Zaydan.
As long as what you mean by the name is good, you don't have to worry about anything else.
