Meaning of Maira
Maira is an indirect Quranic name for girls that has two meanings from two different roots, both of which are mentioned in the Quran. The first meaning comes from the M-W-R root and means “light”, “swift”, “fast-moving”, “penetrating” (an arrow or bullet that’s able to penetrate an object). It is used in the Quran in 52:9:
On the day when the heavens will swiftly fly
It can also be derived from the M-Y-R root, the meaning in this way would become “bringer of food”, “fetcher of food”, a girl or woman who goes to buy food and bring it to someone or a group of people, such as her family. This root is used in Surat Yusuf:
When they opened their packs, they discovered that their money had been returned to them. They said, ‘Our father, what more do we desire than this? This money of ours has been returned to us, so we shall [again] buy food for our family and we shall guard our brother, and we shall obtain an additional camel-load of grain. This [what we have brought now] is only a small quantity.’ (Quran 12:65)
