Children Names - What do Rania/Ranya and Eshaal mean?
  • Question:

    What do the names Rania/Ranya and Eshaal mean? Are these good/appropriate Muslim names for girls?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Rania is a name used in many cultures and communities. When it is used in Muslim communities it usually means “Conqueror”, “Queen” or “The observant one”. The meaning of Esha'al is “The excited one” or “The illuminated one”. Both these names are Islamically acceptable for Muslim girls.

    And Allah knows best.
