SUMAYYA (سميّة).  Arabic name, meaning "high above," or "minaret." (Dictionary of the Hausa Language, Robinson, 1913).  In Tagalog sumaya means "rejoice, revel." (A Tagalog-English English-Tagalog Dictionary, Nigg, 1904).

... 'Ubaid and Sumayya were 2 slaves given by the Kisra of Persia to Abu-lKhair Yazid Ibn Shurahbil, one of the kings of AlYaman, and by him to the physician AlHarith Ibn Kalada athThakafi, who married 'Ubaid to Sumayya.  Now Abu Sufyau had been suspected of intriguing with Sumayya, and she bore Ziyad at that period, but gave birth to him on the bed of her husband 'Ubaid...
