Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah allah blessed us baby girl.. i choose some names like laiba,zyna,zuha,manal, some moulana says these names are good some of them are telling not good and meaning also not good so please suggest me good names and valuable meaning foy my daughter

In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

Alhamdulillāh, may Allah make her the coolness of her parent’s eyes, a source of blessing for you and the Ummah of our Prophet ﷺ; and grant her ease & comfort in this world and the hereafter. Aameen

The meanings of the names you have selected are as follows:

Laiba / Laibah: pronounced as Lāʿibah with an ‘ayn’ (لَاعِبَة) means ‘female player’ and Lāʾibah with a ‘hamza’ (لَائِبَة) means ‘thirsty female’. [1] It is advised not to keep this name, as the meaning is not befitting a baby girl.

Note: please see referenced article [1] for additional detail on the variations and dislike of selecting this name.

Zaina / Zaynah (زينة): means ‘beautiful’.  It is permissible to keep this name.

Zuha: with the correct pronunciation being Duhā (ضُحَى), means ‘morning hours’ or ‘forenoon’. It is the title of the 93rd chapter of the Holy Qur’ān. It is permissible to keep this name.

Manal (منال): means ‘attainment’ or ‘achievement’. It is permissible to keep this name.

As names have an effect and impact on the child, it is recommended that a suitable name is selected from; the names of the female companions of the Prophet ﷺ and pious servants of Allah.

For alternatives, please find below an online directory for names, although not extensive:

And a list of names of female companions of the Prophet ﷺ :

And Allah Ta’āla knows best
