Meaning of Ranya

Ranya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “winner”, “one who triumphs”, “victor”, “successful”. It is derived from the R-Y-N root which is used in the Quran in verse 83:14. The name can also be derived from a non-Quranic root (A-R-N) in which case the name would mean “one who has a loving gaze”, which is a good meaning as well.

No! Rather, that which they were earning has overrun their hearts. (Quran 83:14)

    The quranic word is raana and means rust.. or corrosion.. of the heart. Doesn’t seem like a good meaning to me

    According to dictionary (Lane’s Lexicon, page 1210 (of 3039), ) it mean “became rusty or covered with rust”

    i cannot find the non quranic root (hamza, ra, noon) or (A,R,N) in dictionary? And the Quranic root (R,Y,N) means “become rusty”, Can you suggest please?

    The root is not alif (hamza) ra noon. Changing the position of letters in arabic language is, in fact, making another word. Rania is just a name as Fatima or Mariam is, which are not derived from a meaning word (verb or name).
