Naming baby girl ‘hannanah’

06 Jan 2022 Ref-No#: 4263

Can we name our daughter hannanah حنانه is it a good name and does it has a good meaning? Jazakallah khair


Assalāmuʿalaykum Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh

The name ‘Ḥannānah’ (حَنَانَة) is of Arabic origin which means: A woman who possesses a high degree of love, compassion, and sympathy.

However, due to many state-provided Identity Documents being unable to accommodate the special characters ‘Ḥ’ and ‘ā’ which are found above, one may suffice on keeping the spelling as ‘Hannaanah‘ or ‘Hannanah’.

It is permissible to name your daughter as such.
