Aisha-The most common Muslim girl’s first name on earth according to some statistics found online; this can be spelled in English alphabetical order AISHAH, or more traditionally AHICHA if you prefer it that way.

It became more commonly known after it appeared in its Latin form on a papal bull issued by Pope Benedict XII in 1419 which said that all female monasteries were to be named ‘Sanctae Sophiae’, but today, this is the name of hundreds if not thousands of religious organizations worldwide.
Sara-Urdu origin, meaning: companion or friend; a lovely option for your daughter’s first name considering that it also means “princess” in Hebrew! This would be pronounced SHERRAH.
