      Hi Vivek,

      Sorry for the late reply. I was discussing with our Urdu Expert.
      1. Ayra word does not exist in Sanskrit.
      2. It is a popular Muslim girl name but it is not even an Arabic/Urdu word. It most probably has Sindhi origins with meaning as Respectable. (Not very clear)
      But Muslims love it as a girl’s names.
      Now if you have liked the name and want to relate to some Sanskrit roots then here is a suggestion: एरा means Ewe/sheep in Sanskrit, we Indians don’t prefer such meanings but there are many names in European region which have such meanings. (Fox, Sheep etc)
      ऐर means abundant in food and refreshments which is positive meaning.
      You can also say it is inspired by Airawati ऐरावती which is female of Indra’s elephant

      ॐ सिद्धिदायै नमः। Siddhida (Also Saraswati: ॐ सिद्धिदायै नमः। )
      ॐ सर्वसिद्धिप्रदाशक्तये नमः। SiddhiPrada
