Full Meaning of Owmniah

Owmniah is an direct Quranic name that means “wish”, “hope”, “fancy”. It is mentioned in the Quran in 22:52. It is derived from the M-N-Y root which is used in many places in the Quran, and its plural is Amani, which is another direct Quranic name for girls.

Yet whenever We sent forth any apostle or prophet before thee, and he was hoping [that his warnings would be heeded], Satan would cast an aspersion on his hopes: but God renders null and void whatever aspersion Satan may cast; and God makes His messages clear in and by themselves for God is all-knowing, wise. (Quran 22:52)
