    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 488/458/N=1434) According to Arabic language, the meaning of Zariah (زاریہ) is not good. It means: a woman who finds faults, one who disdains someone, one who rebukes, etc كذا في تاج العروس (38: 215-216) ومصباح اللغات (ص 337). Hence you should change the name of your daughter and keep any good and meaningful name.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
