In German, the Z and the C would both make a ts sound, which isn't the case in Arabic to my knowledge. Also, a 'word referring to Allah' isn't necessarily used as a name ...

I knew an English-speaking woman named Cyelle, which was her parents' version of Cele, short for Cecilia and pronounced Seal like the marine mammal. And Cecilia (or Caecilia) exists and gets the ts sound for both its Cs in German. Was it a German TV show? Or set in Germany?
