Meaning of Nawal

Nawal is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “gift”, “blessing”, “bestowal”. It is derived from the N-Y-L root (to reach, to accomplish, to get) which is used in a number of places in the Quran.

[But bear in mind:] never does the flesh (of sacrifice animals)  reach God, and neither the blood: it is only your God-consciousness that reaches Him. It is to this end that We have made them subservient to your needs, so that you might glorify God for all the guidance with which He has graced you. And give thou this glad tiding unto the doers of good. (Quran 22:37)
