Title: Is it appropriate to name the new born baby girl as Humaira Fatima?

Question

Assalamu'alaikum

Is it appropriate to name the new born baby girl as Humaira Fatima?

Also I would like to know the correct spelling of the name. 

Humayra or Humaira

Fatima or Fatimah 

Jazakallah Khair

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

The correct spelling of the names would be

  1. Humaira or Humayra[1]
  2. Fatimah[2]

The names Humaira and Fatimah are suitable names for a baby girl.

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

السنن الكبرى للنسائي (8/ 181) [1]

أخبرنا يونس بن عبد الأعلى قال: أخبرنا ابن وهب قال: أخبرني بكر بن مضر، عن ابن الهاد، عن محمد بن إبراهيم، عن أبي سلمة بن عبد الرحمن، عن عائشة، زوج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قالت: دخل الحبشة المسجد يلعبون فقال لي: يا حميراء أتحبين أن تنظري إليهم فقلت: «نعم، فقام بالباب وجئته فوضعت ذقني على عاتقه فأسندت وجهي إلى خده» قالت: «ومن قولهم يومئذ أبا القاسم طيبا» فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: «حسبك» فقلت: يا رسول الله لا تعجل، فقام لي ثم قال: «حسبك» فقلت: «لا تعجل يا رسول الله» قالت: «وما لي حب النظر إليهم، ولكني أحببت أن يبلغ النساء مقامه لي ومكاني منه

فتح الباري لابن حجر (2/ 444)

وَفِي رِوَايَةِ النَّسَائِيِّ مِنْ طَرِيقِ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ عَنْهَا دَخَلَ الْحَبَشَةُ يَلْعَبُونَ فَقَالَ لِي النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَا حُمَيْرَاءُ أَتُحِبِّينَ أَنْ تَنْظُرِي إِلَيْهِمْ فَقُلْتُ نَعَمْ إِسْنَادُهُ صَحِيحٌ وَلَمْ أَرَ فِي حَدِيثٍ صَحِيحٍ ذِكْرَ الْحُمَيْرَاءِ إِلَّا فِي هَذَا
