Good Names for Girls

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I will be having a baby girl soon. Does Mufti have any suggestions with regards to names? Is Quaanita a good name?

A. The best names are the names of the wives of the prophets, their daughters and names of the female Sahaabiyaat. Also names of the pious ladies before our Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) such as Maryam, Aasiya, etc

Go for names that have active meanings such as Saajidah, Shaakirah, Aabidah, Zhaakirah, Taahirah, Siddeeqah, Saadiqah, Haamidah, Khaashi’ah, Saaliha, Laaiqah, and so forth. The meaning will have an effect on the child Inshaa Allah. Qaanitah is also a good name, meaning ‘one who is submissive’ (to Allah Ta’aala).
