In case this is helpful, the ى at the end of the name Arwa is an alif even though it looks like a ya. It's called Alif Maqṣurah. At first it was throwing me off, but there's an excellent video that explains it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yXWYSgW13I (The speaker starts with an explanation of another type of Alif called a Dagger Alif, but moves to Maqṣurah Alif in the middle, so skip if you want to.)
