R for Ruqaiya

‘Ruqaiya’ is the name of my husband’s maternal grandmother. In the family, she is known as ‘Amma’ (meaning mother). My husband was very attached to her and misses her immensely. But unfortunately I never got to meet her. She passed away a couple of years prior to our wedding.  I hear she was a very special woman. She was loving as well as loved by all. (Something I wrote for her)

It’s a girl name.
Origin: Arabic

Meaning: Spell/Superior

I am taking part in the Blogging From #AtoZChallenge [April 2015].
