Names (personal, company) / children's names
English term or phrase: Inaya or Inayah
I am of arabic descent and want to name my newborn child(girl) Inaya. I have found this name many places online but my mother, who is from Morocco, said she has never heard of it. I want to be sure it is an appropriate name for a child, and of it's meaning.
I have heard the translation as: concern, solicitude, care, providence
Can this be used as a person's name?
Can this be considered an Islamic name?
