zaria F

arabic
ZáHARA > ZAHRAḧ

This name derives from the Arabic and Persian (fārsi) “záhara > zahraḧ”, meaning “to shine, brilliant, bright, blooming flower, to grow, to sow”. The Ottoman and Persian empires have expanded the use of these names to Slavic countries and the Indian subcontinent, respectively. Zahra is also used as a surname, particularly in Malta. The names are difficult to distinguish in transliteration, and may be transliterated in various ways, such as Zehra and Zohra(h).
