Meaning of Sana

Sana is a direct Quranic name for girls meaning to shine dazzlingly, to glitter, to glow. It is used in the Quran in 24:43 when describing lightning:

Do you not see that Allah drives clouds? Then He brings them together, then He makes them into a mass, and you see the rain emerge from within it. And He sends down from the sky, mountains [of clouds] within which is hail, and He strikes with it whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills. The flash of its lightening almost takes away the eyesight. (Quran 24:43)
