Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
My name is Razwana please can you tell me the meaning of this name?
As I could only find Rizwana in the Islamic list, I want to know if Razwana is correct or not?

The word Rizwan appears in the Qur’an in the meaning of ‘acceptance’, ‘pleasure’ or ‘contentment’. This name can either be pronounced as ‘Rizwan’ or ‘Ruzwan’ as found in the dictionary and after suffixing a ‘taa’ in Arabic or ‘a’ in English it becomes a female name – RizwanA. ‘Razwana’ with an a hasn’t been mentioned. However, pronouncing it with an a does not alter the meaning to an extent that would render the name impermissible rather it’s simply a spelling error. The meaning of acceptance is still very often attributed to it but in reality, Razwana with an ‘a’ is meaningless.
And only Allah knows best
