Iraj [pronounced as (EE)l + (RU)n + (J)ump] is an ancient Farsi name (used for boys only in Iran, and used for girls in Desi culture) mentioned in the Shahnameh of of the poet Firdausi. The meaning of this name isn't simple since it is an ancient name, but it is said that it means free, gentle, or noble. Since it has a good meaning Muslims cn use it.
Alisha is not an Arabic or Quranic name. Alisha means noble and protected by God, it is a variant of Alicia and comes from Germanic roots. Since it has a good meaning Muslims can use it.
