Name of girl child

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I have been blessed with a girl child and we have named her SHAIK AL-RAEESA SIDDEEQAH. I want to know the meaning of this name and is it right to add prefixes like AL and what is the meaning of that.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh al-Raisa is not good name. keep the name of your daughter only Siddiqah only or add Juveria or Aisha etc before Siddiqah. Siddiqah means chaste and truthful woman thus it is a good name.

Allah knows Best!
