Additional Info

Anaya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “care”, “protection”, “diligence”. It is a variant of the name Inaya

As for the origin of this name, it is mentioned in the classical Arabic dictionary Qamoos al-Muhit by the scholar Fairuzabadi (died 1414 CE) in the first line of the entry for AIN-N-A and on the same line with Inayah, suggesting that they are synonyms:
He is the only scholar who mentions this word, it is either a rare word or a non-standard variant that other scholars had not heard of. Either way, it is an acceptable name since Muslims are always creating new names based on older words and there is no prohibition on this practice.

As for a Quranic reference for this root, it is used in Surat Taha in verse 111:
