Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
We have kept our daughter name Arzoo Alaika so please suggest me is it good name to keep and also if it is available in Islamic name and the meaning of Alaika.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1052/687/L=1434)

Arzoo means ambition, desire. This name is correct; however the word Alaika is meaningless hence it is better for you to keep only the name Arzoo for your daughter.

Allah knows Best!
