    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 151/110/L=02/1435) Arisha means palki (palanquin). This name is also right, but if you replace it with any of the following names it will be better: Khadijah, Afifah, Sumayyah, Hafsah, Ayishah, Fatimah, Khansa etc.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
