Naming child ‘minnah’?


We are expecting our first child, in a few months – Insha Allah. I have been looking at some Arabic Islamic girl names and I want to know if the name described below is ok to be used or no?

Since we are having a girl, the name is: Minnah (Arabic) – meanings are: Kindness, grace, blessing, mercy, gift from Allah.
I got this name from the following website:

Please advice us, we would really appreciate it. Insha Allah, Jazak Allah
باسمه تعالى
We have been recommended to give good name to the child because a person will be called by his name and the name of his father on the day of Qiyamah. The names of Sahabiyaat, Tabiyaat and pious and righteous women are regarded as the best names. However the word referred to carries good meaning but I have never heard of such name of any lady.
والله اعلم
