Can my best friend name her daughter Insha?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
My best friend has given birth to a girl child.Wondering whether she could be named insha?


(Fatwa: 813/813/J)

It is narrated in hadith that you will be called on the Day of Judgment by your and your fathers? names; therefore keep good names. (Mishkaat: 408) The name ?Insha? though pleasant in speaking and listening, but it is not so meaningful. ?Insha? means to create, to nourish, to start, to write, text, style of writing, etc. If your friend wishes she can keep this name but it is advisable to choose any name of Sahabiyat and Tabeyiyat or any good meaningful name for her daughter.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
