What’s the correct spelling for the girls name Maniya “מאניה” if this is known or written anywhere?


Most sefarim spell the name מניא, with an aleph at the end, and without an aleph after the mem, but rather with a patach under the mem.

The sefarim point out that if the name is spelt with the aleph after the mem, it remains fine.

See Tiv Gittin, Likkutei Sheimos, Mem, which is the source from which sefarim cite (see Minchas Aharon, Women’s Names, Mem; Chagor Ha-Eifod, Women’s Names, Mem; and others).
