Na’ma.
 
A daughter of the race of man, who was beloved by the angel Zaraph. Her one wish was to love purely, intensely, and holily; but she fixed her love on a seraph, a creature, more than on her Creator; therefore, in punishment, she was condemned to abide on earth, “unchanged in heart and frame,” so long as the earth endureth; but when time is no more, both she and her angel lover will be admitted into those courts “where love never dies.” (Moore: Loves of the Angels, story iii.)   1
