Keeping one's daughter's name Ayah Samad

Q: I understand the name Samad cannot be used as a first name. I want to name my daughter Ayah Samad or Ayah as Samad is this possible or is it also haraam to use without Abdul being associated with Samad? 

A: We suggest that you don't keep this name.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
