I was wondering if the name "Nyla" appears in the Qur'an and if it's a permissible name.


This is an official answer by Staff

Nyla is another spelling of Naa'ila, which means achiever/winner. The root of the word is "nala", which means "he/she achieved", and this root is mentioned in the Quran. But the name itself, Naa'ila is not mentioned.

It's a permissible name since it has a good meaning.

    Are both Nala and Nahla Muslim names ? Are they completely different in meaning and how are they pronounced ?
