I have seen the name RIda on a few sites. Would it be possible to verify this as a name. For a girl


This is an official answer by Staff

Rida is a name used for both boys and girls and it means contentment and the state of being obedient toward Allah SWT.

It's used more for boys since it has a specifically female version (Ridwan). But I've also seen it used for girls and there is no grammatical/Islamic reason not to use it for girls. Rida al-Kurdawi is a famous Egyptian woman.
