Meaning of Nazaha - Baby Name

Assalamalaikum wrwb
I wanted to know the meaning of the name NAZAHA and it’s origin... is it an Arabic/Urdu name? Is it appropriate to name a baby girl NAZAHA?
Please respond ASAP.
JazakAllah khair.

 الجواب وبالله التوفيق 

Nazahah نزاھہ in its origin is an Arabic word and is used in Urdu. Its meaning is پاکیزگی (purity). A baby girl can be given this name, however, it has a negative aspect, i.e., when someone asks, "Is Nazahah here" and the answer is given, "Is not here" then bad omen gets evident and Huzoor صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم has forbidden from the words with similar meaning, e.g., رباح (Rabah) etc.
