Meaning of Waniya

Waniya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “soft, gentle breeze”. It is derived from the W-N-Y root (softened, weakened, slackened) which is used in the Quran in 20:42:

Go, you and your brother, with My signs and do not slacken in My remembrance.

Some sites say Waniya is also a Hebrew word meaning gift from Allah, and one site says it means pearl. All of the meanings are acceptable, for this reason Muslims can use this name.

  33. on Friday 29th of November 2019 03:44:06 PM

    Aoa all. Waniya is a good name. My daughter’s name is waniya and i know its meaning gift of god. But as you say its in quran and you give the roots and its reference. For all who do not find it. Its in the surah Ta ha suraah 20 and ayaa number 42. In this ayyat its meaning weak slackened but its not waniya word used in the ayat. Its.. Wa La Taniyaa fi zikri. Meaning do not slacken in my remembrance. But slacken is the meaning of taniyaa or niyaa not for waniya. Hope you all got my point.

  34. on Wednesday 20th of May 2020 03:09:05 PM

    How do you pronounce waniya? I love the meaning. I wanted
    for my new baby

  35. on Thursday 28th of January 2021 09:48:21 PM

    Assalamualaikum my name is wania , it’s meaning in this website is weakened , slackened I know that its for niyaa are taniya but in my there is also niyaa so is it going to affect my personality in a bad way i.e and my name isn’t enriched in its meaning and if I am going to change my name to ayesha or fatima is it going to affect my personality

  36. on Thursday 28th of January 2021 09:53:35 PM

    Can I change my name from wania to ayesha because I don’t like it’s meaning and if I am going to change my name is it going to affect my personality

  37. on Thursday 29th of February 2024 03:42:05 PM

    Of course You can change Your name.

    I named my Daughter Wania, but my local Imam Sab says it’s not an Islamic name.

    May Allah AZW guide us all.
