I have just finished my 2nd placement for my teacher training, and the school was 98% population of asian/pakistani students. It was an all girls school too. I found it really interesting how different their names were, and thought I'd post some of the most common ones to see what you all thought

Iqra
Anam
Henna
Aysha
Javeria
Aneeka
Aneesa
Laraib
Alisha
Zeinab
Haleema
Faiza
Alina
Huma
Humaira
Taibah (ty-buh)
Samera
Nashaba
Nafeesa
Saniya
Saba
Mevish
Amirah

Thats all I can think of right now. Tbh, I don't really like many of them. Some are quite interesting. Apparently culturally they go for the meaning of a name, rather than what it sounds like which I think is quite nice. I have no idea what any of these mean though!
