Do you know the meaning of your name? If you are a convert/revert to Islam, how did you choose your name. If you were born Muslim, do you know how your parents chose your name? My name is Hafsa and it means Lioness. According to my mum, she named me after her aunt because she likes the woman's nature, always easy going and friendly, a very likable person. I like the name cause Hafsa was the name of one of our prophet's (SAW) wives. Also if I remember correctly she was the first Hafeezul-Quraan in the history of Islam.
