Arabic spelling of name

Question ID: 27926

As salaamu alaikum,

Please can you give me the arabic spelling for the name Zia? I know that it means light from one of your previous questions.

My mother is studying Arabic and she says that Zia spelt in a different way means attire or fashion. Please can you assist me with this as, if i do decide to name my baby Muhammad Zia, i would like to pronounce and spell it properly.
