I came across this on google translate and I love its sound…I would love to utilize this lovely word if indeed it does mean inner soul!

    If you drop the second R in the word, you get a lot of modern organizations/groups/etc who use the word "interanima." It still doesn't mean "inner soul," but maybe the double R is a typo?

No. Anima is the Latin word for soul, apart from that the word is not a proper Latin construction and it's not clear what it could mean. For what it's worth, inter means "between" or "among."

A straightforward translation of "inner soul" would be interior anima or intima anima. (Intima means something like "innermost.") A less generic translation may be possible depending on context.
