The name “Alayna”

Q: Is it permissible to keep the name alayna الينة as in the root ل ي ن not علينا the preposition. Alayna is derived from layyinah which is mentioned in surah taha. Alayna is also mentioned in surah yaseen. Is Aleena or liyana suitable names?


A: We have not come across this name.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
