All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.
We are not aware of the meaning of the name Mahreen or Sansabeel, as they are not Arabic names. As regards Salsabeel, with an 'l' instead of a 'n' then this is a name of a fountain in
We do not see any harm in naming your daughter with the above names; however, we do not know the meaning of Mahreen and Sansabeel.
Finally, we advise you to choose names other than those mentioned in the question, like the names of the wives of the Prophet or his daughters, or the names of the female companions or names of righteous and pious Muslim women, as these names remind a person about the biography of these noble people, and how much they were pious and righteous.
Allaah Knows best.
