Meaning of the name Ziraar

Q: I have a son. I kept his name Ziraar but people told me that this name is not good, it has a bad meaning. Please tell me about the meaning.

A: Ziraar was the name of a Sahaabi. It can have a good meaning that a person will destroy evil.

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