      Some of these names are really nice.

      For boys, I like Adam and Aydin. For girls, I like Alayna, Hana and Maliha.

      I didn't realise Rihanna could be a Muslim name, sounds lovely..

      Mehnaz, those two exact names are what I'm wanting to call my future sons inshAllah..

      As much as I like the name Ryan, I don't want to lose the Islamic pronunciation and meaning of Rayan.

      One of my cousins is called Ryan spelled the Western way, don't think it matters tbh esp when we have other Islamic names spelled in a Western way as well like Sarah, Sara, Nadia, Adam etc.

      Deeba1234 - Does your cousin have to constantly correct people on the pronunciation? I'm not 100% sure, but is Rayan supposed to be pronounced as Ray-yan, Rain, or can it be pronounced Ry-an?

      To be honest I don't think he's that bothered about the pronounciation as nearly everyone just says it the Western way and it's too much hassle to correct them all. I nearly always get called Debra even tho Deeba looks nothing like it lol, even by desi people who u'd think wouldn't be that stupid, just cos I have light hair and eyes and honestly I've given up trying to correct them.

      Princessq if ur woried about ppl mispronouncing it I would spell it the Islamic way cos maybe some ppl might at least think twice when they read it and perhaps try and make the effort to say it the Muslim way. If it doesn't bother u just choose whatever u feel comfortable with.

      ooh a lot of the names on your list are names i love too! i particularly love Aliya, Amani, and Amara.
      what i also love for girls is Eliana which is Hebrew and means "God has answered".
      i'd be careful with Arianna though- its Greek meaning is "Very holy one" which i'm wondering, could it mean the equivalent of a prophet in Islam? or could it just be anyone who's very holy? some clarification? anyone?
      i also really love Leilani (i like names ending in i). it means- The girl's name Leilani \le(i)-la-ni\ is pronounced lay-LAH-nee. It is of Hawaiian origin, and its meaning is "heavenly lei; royal child of heaven". A "lei" is the familiar Hawaiian necklace of flowers, shells or feathers. It symbolizes regard and love for the person to whom it is given.

      for boys, i like the classics hussain and hassan.

      I've liked a lot of these too! Before you decide, do make sure to confirm the meanings from a reliable source. I think I've looked at the site you've got, but had trouble finding other places that confirmed the meaning of some of my favorites.
