Might not be to your taste but my sister has the middle name Ashara. It's the number ten in Arabic - my parents were living in the Middle East at the time and learning Arabic.

Spotted lots of my nieces names here (they are Arabic)
Any taken your fancy so far OP?

I dont its really hard cause a lot of them sound similar to family or friends names.
i hadn't heard annisa or soreya before so they may go on the list x

Although its old fashioned have you thought of Hawwa? We named dd2 this and it's actually very cute, and been received well by others, and if your husband is Muslim he would hopefully be keen on it too.

Aisha & Amina are so common already. Lots of other lovely choices here. We used to know a lovely Summiyah, don't know if that's remotely suitable.
