There is nothing wrong with calling a girl Meera

Question

My husband likes the name "Meera" a lot,and wants to give this name to our daughter in future.Is that name allowed in Islam?Please guide us

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

“Meera” in Arabic means “food”, so there is nothing wrong with using this name. Please also see Question no. 7180 concerning the etiquette of giving names.
