A Quranic Name for Girls

Meaning: Kind, Compassionate and Tenderhearted

Raheymeh is variant of Raahima and has the exact same meaning and pronunciation (see below for full meaning). You can use either Raheymeh or Raahima, both are correct and acceptable. If you like this variant more and you'd like to pronounce it the way it is spelled (different than the original name), this is perfectly acceptable. For more details please see the main entry at: Raahima.

Full Meaning of Raheymeh

Raheymeh is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “a woman who acts kindly towards others”, “one who has mercy and compassion when she deals with others”. It is derived from the R-H6-M which is used often in the Quran and is the root of two of the most important names of Allah: ar-Rahmaan (the Most Gracious) and ar-Raheem (the Most Merciful). Below is an example of the R-H6-M root in the Quran:

He said, ‘My Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us to Your mercy. You are the Most Merciful of the merciful.’

Raheymeh should not be confused with Raheema, which has a close meaning and pronunciation but is a different word.
