Question: As Salam Wa Alaikum I like Rumaisah as my new baby girl name. Can you please tell me if I can keep this name. Many thanks in advance.
Answer:
According to the best of my knowledge, there is no precedent for using this name. The root meaning of rams is burying; so if you call anyone Ramees or Rameesah or Rumaisa, it would mean the buried one. So, it is not a pleasant name to call your daughter. Who would like to call his or her daughtered 'the buried one'!
 
Therefore, I would not recommend this name. You should choose some other good name; here is a few of them:
 
Maleehah, Sabeehah, Sameerah, Shakirah, Sajidah, Hafsah, Huda, Safiyyah, Khadijah, Aishah, etc.
 
On the etiquettes of naming children, please refer to the answer linked below:
