    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.
