A retraction


Explanation:
I don't know where my mind was when I dispatched my first response.

As you probably know, names are typically not translated, but transliterated, in which case your friends name would be rendered

فيث

If for some reason your friend wants the Arabic translation of the word "faith," because she wants to highlight what the word means, then certainly the first answer stands.

I apologize for my utter absentmindedness.
