    This is it ancient Hebrew name, that many of us messianic-Jews use for our girls, as well as Christians and Jews of Iran, and Jews of Iraq, and juice of turkey, very popular than Christian, messianic Jewish, Jewish communities in Israel, being that Hebrew and Arabic are related and sore it’s peoples only divided by religion when following a false prophet the other one following the Lord son, it is not unusual for Hebrew words to be mixed into Islamic languages
