Fairuza Origin and Meaning

The name Fairuza is a girl's name of Turkish origin meaning "turquoise".

Instead of the more obvious Aqua, Turquoise, or Blue, consider this offbeat Arabic name, brought into the American name pool by actress Fairuza Balk (named by her father for the color of her eyes). Since turquoise is the birthstone for December, Fairuza is one of the perfect names for December babies.
