A: The following are some of the names we could locate:

Amaani – hopes

Asmaa – name of the daughter of Hadhrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu anhu)

Hannah – compassion

Maahirah – expert

Maariyah – she was the slave-woman of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

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