I have been blessed with a baby girl, I want to name her "Mashaim", please let me know meaning of this name and its origin. I have heard that the fragrant bareez that will flow in Jannah is called "Mashaim". Please also let me know if I have spelled it right or not. Jazak Allah.

I do not know of any name similar to Mashaim. The closest Arabic word is Mashaa'eem, which means "cursed people", "people who are not blessed". It is the plural of Mash'oom ("cursed", "not blessed"). Obviously this is not a good word to use as a name. But the Mashaim you are asking about might be a different word from another origin, and if it has a good meaning then you can use it.
