Etymology & Historical Origin - Samiya

Samiya (سامية) is a female name of Arabic origin, equivalent to the masculine Sāmi meaning “elevated, sublime”.

Not only that, but the “-iya” and “-iyah” suffix on names have become all the rage in some circles. Here are some other examples of the “-iya” craze: Aliya, Amiya, Aniya, Jamiya, Janiya, Saniya, Shaniya and Taniya.
