“I saw a lot of comments from some Muslims saying it’s Aminat, some said it’s ‘meenah’ and mennah is not a Muslim name etc so it is not Aminat, neither is it meenah… The correct name is MINNAH
I understand it’s not a common name so a lot of people aren’t used to it, it’s a powerful, sweet, unique name that’s why when hubby suggested it, I loved it
If you are a Muslim and searching for a unique baby girl’s name for your princess, I’ll recommend MINNAH and make sure you invite me to the naming ”
