Meaning of Leena

Leena is a direct Quranic name for girls that means “young palm tree”, figuratively meaning “soft and delicate”. Some people pronounce the name Leenaa, with a long “a” sound at the end, that’s an acceptable variant. It’s mentioned in the following Quranic verse:

Whatever [of their] young palm trees you may have cut down, [O believers,] or left standing on their roots, was [done] by God’s leave, and in order that He might confound the iniquitous. {59:5}

    My name is Leenah and I think this was pretty helpful to understand the meaning of my name!

    My name is Leena! I was really ashamed of being Arab and Muslim before because of all the bad stuff said about us. I used to just say I was not Muslim at all and that my name was short for Caroleena so that no one would judge me. Now I’m proud of being Arab and I have a long list of baby names that are either Arab or can be said in Arabic because I would want my child to grow up with a relationship to their roots. My parents were about to call me Zina but loved Leena. My sister’s name is Tala which also means palm tree, what a coincidence haha! Sorry this was long lmao

    I’m planning to name my daughter the name LEENA. However I’m not sure on the spelling, you see I know three Leenas all with the spelling of LINA. English people use the spelling LENA which I just don’t get at all! So help me choose the right spelling for my little princess xxx

    Spell it Leena – this way it has the same sound in both English and French and Urdu / Arabic. If you spell it Lina, then in French it sounds like Leena, but in English it sounds like Line(a)

  29. on Tuesday 22nd of December 2020 12:26:27 PM
