Safa and Iram as Names

Q: Are the names Safa and Iram good? Which one is better and what are the meanings?

The name Iram is linked to the nation of Aad on whom Divine punishment descended. Some say it is the name of a 'paradise' which Shaddaad had built. Shaddaad is the enemy of Allah. (Ma'aariful Qur'aan; Surah Fajr). The name Iram should not be kept.

Safa is also a good name meaning cleanliness or clean

Better than Safa is the name Safiyyah which means 'chosen'.
