Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: It is permissible to use an indirect Quranic name. For example, Zayana is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “adorner”, one who adorns and beautifies something, “adorned”, beautiful, and one who improves things and solves problems. It is derived from the Z-Y-N root which is used in many places in the Quran: “And He [it is who] decreed that they become seven heavens in two aeons, and imparted unto each heaven its function. And We adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lights, and made them secure: such is the ordaining of the Almighty, the All-Knowing. (Quran 41:12)”


A: These are your own inventions. Avoid all this stupidity.

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