I'd like to know about the following names for girls, what is the meaning from Quran? Sana, Shanum (find on some websites but can't get clear meaning), Shahin, Irtiqa, Ruqaya, Rahila, Are there any new sounding names from Quran that you recommend?


This is an official answer by Staff

For Sana look at these two pages: Sana | Sanaa

I don't know of any Arabic word that sounds like Shanum. I have looked in both Arabic and Farsi dictionaries and there doesn't seem to be a word like that. It might be an Urdu word.

Shahin is another spelling of Shaheen, for its details see this answer: Shahin, Shadhin, Rakeem and Sarim. Are these quranic names and what is their meanings?

For the details of Irtiqa and Ruqaya please see here: Irtiqa | Ruqayya

 For the details of Rahila please see this page: Rahila
