    Hello – We are considering naming our daughter to be born Elana. We want to make sure this name is Arabic and the spelling is correct. We are also considering the middle name to be Inci. Please confirm if both the names are Arabic and their meanings as we want to go for a names with Muslim/Arabic significance.

    Thank you.
