Afia is lovely, and people will know it as there was a character with the name on Eastenders. Actually, thinking of Eastenders, Amira is lovely too!

I'm a Hannah. Not a muslim though.

But it is a good one for integration. Its common among the jewish and muslim as well as christian and secular communities and its vv common in eastern europe. Americans are v keen on it too (my Dad is american).
