Assalamualaikum, I would like to know the meaning of Nazeeha or Nazaha for a baby girl, with any possible direct or indirect reference to any verse found in The Quran. JazakAllahu Khayr, Was salamualaikum

Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

Nazeeha is an Arabic name that means "chaste", "pure", "free from flaws", "free from bad attributes". It is pronounced [(NU)mber] + [(Z)oom + sw(EE)t] + [(HU)mble] with emphasis on the second syllable. It is written as نَزِيْهَة in Arabic and can also be written as Nazeehah, Naziha, Nazihah, Nezihe in English.

Nazaha comes from the same root as Nazeeha and means "chastity", "purity", "freedom from flaws and bad attributes". It is pronounced [(NU)mber] + [(Z)oom + m(A)n] + [(HU)mble] with emphasis on the second syllable. It is written as نَزَاهَة in Arabic and can also be written as Nazahah, Nazaaha, Nazaahah, Nezahe in English.

Nazeeha and Nazaha are non-Quranic names, they aren't directly mentioned in the Quran and they come from the N-Z-H26 root which is not used in the Quran. But since their meaning is good Muslims can use them.
