Origin:Arabic
Meaning:Pure, clarity; Serenity
There's nothing as pure as the love a parent feels for a child, nor the serenity that comes with watching their little one grow! Safa, pronounced SAF-ah, is a gender-neutral name meaning "pure" or "clarity." Certainly, having a little bundle to mind brings a new kind of clarity to what's important in life! Safa also symbolizes serenity, which may come as no surprise, as even saying this sibilant name inspires a sense of calm. It is a diminutive of Safaa, the name of a sacred hill close to Mecca, making this name extra resonant for the Muslim community.
