Assalamu Alaik Sheikh!
Alhamdulillah I am
Blessed with a beautiful daughter recently. I have another Daughter and her name is Maria. Can I keep my newborn girl name Mariyam as we like the name due to its importance in the Holy quran? Do Maria and Mariyam do have the same meaning? I really appreciate your advise in this regard.
Both names are good. â€˜Mariaâ€™ was one of the wifeâ€™s of Prophet Muhammad (ØµÙ„ÙŠ Ø§Ù„Ù„Ù‡ Ø¹Ù„ÙŠÙ‡ ÙˆØ³Ù„Ù… ) it means, white or radiant. â€˜Maryamâ€™ was the mother of Isa (Ø¹Ù„ÙŠÙ‡ Ø§Ù„Ø³Ù„Ø§Ù…) it means, female servant.
