    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 348/348/M=1434) Hind is an Arabic word. It is spoken for the folk of camel that ranges from 100 to 200. هند اسم لجماعة من الإبل عددها من نحو مأة إلى مئتين (المعجم الوسيط) No holy wife was named as Hind. You may keep the name Hindah for your daughter.
