Meaning of names
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Ref - Tahseen: The term Tahseen is derived from the Arabic root word Husn meaning beautiful.
Ref - Afroze. Afroze means something that shines or is radiant or brilliant.
Ref Sumaiyyah: Although the name itself does not have a meaning, it is derived from the name of the noble female companion of the Prophet (saws) and the mother of Hadrat Ammar ibn Yasser (r.a.), who is credited as being the first woman martyred in the Cause of Islam.
Ref Zaheer: If spelt with the Arabic alphabet za it means shining, radiant, or elevated; and if spelt with the Arabic alphabet zoi it means a helper.
Ref - Matha-ul-Ameen: Ameen means one who is trustworthy, but there is no such term as matha in the Arabic language. If the term is mata then it means provisions of the world.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
