Rania is a feminine name inspired by Greek and Arabic roots. As a Greek name, Rania sits amongst the gods as a short form of Urania, meaning “heavenly one.” Rania’s Arabic origins link it to Raniya and Raniyah, from rana, meaning “gazing” or “looking at” for the baby who finds beauty in every moment. It may also be a form of Rani, which means "queen" in Sanskrit and "joyful" in Hebrew. Rania inspires imagery of a divine being curiously exploring the world and taking in everything their eyes possibly can—perfectly matching your little one’s curious nature.
