Reply to: Origin and meaning of Solayka by Kargesh
My first idea was SULEIKA, an Arab name of unknown meaning. In the Islamic tradition, Suleika was the name of the wife of Potiphar, the woman who tried to seduce Joseph. Goethe used the name for his collection of poems "West-östlicher Divan," imspired by the translation of poems by the Persian poet Hafis.
