Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)
These are suitable names.
1) معاد – Ma’ad means, The place of return i.e. The Hereafter. (Mukhtarus Sihah Pg.643)
2,a) ماعز -Ma’iz means, young or hardworking. Ma’iz was a name of a Sahabi, Ma’iz Ibn Malik Al Aslami (RA).
b) ماﺋز – Maiz means, distinction. (Misbahul Lughat)
And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
