Also your friend might want to pay attention to soelling, particular the eeee sound. In the Middle East that sound is always written as I (Amir, Nadim, Nasrin, etc). African-Americans, when they began converting to Islam, nearly always chose to write it ee (Kareem, Jameela). Since your friend can claim both traditions it would be interesting to see which spellings she favors.
Lastly, Behati is Afrikaans. Very few black people would chose Afrikaans names because of the racial history of southern Africa.Blade, MD

Iesha - I like this one when it is pronounced like Isha not Eye-ee-sha
Magdelena and Magdalene don't fit these categories, but are really pretty <3
Safia - might get confused with Sofia, but it is really pretty
Samar or Samara
Soraya - beautiful!
Yseult - it doesn't fit the category, but I met an Arabic woman with this name
I have always thought that Noor was a beautiful name! Why not Yasmine instead of Jasmine?
I know people with the names in italics
