The name “Hanfa”

Q: We are expeting a baby in few days. I am a bit confused about the name. I searched in many muslims websites it shows the meaning of (HANFA) wife of prophet Ismail (Alayhis Salaam). I want to make sure the name HANFA is correct before calling my new baby. 


A: We have not come across this.

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