Etymology & Historical Origin - Janiah

Janiyah, Janiya and Janiah are all modern American name inventions especially popular within (but not limited to) the African-American community. Made-up names have become more ubiquitous in the United States, and these Janiyah names are only a few examples. Female names ending with the “-iya(h)” suffix have become especially fashionable in certain circles (Aniyah, Amiyah, Jaliyah, Kaliyah, Maliyah, Samiyah, Saniyah, Taliyah, etc. etc.). When a name is made-up, it essentially has no linguistic root and therefore no meaning. Although one might argue that Janiah is an overly-embellished form of Jane, which is an English female equivalent to John.
