Arabic Names ~
English Meanings

There are no real "official Muslim names", although it is understandable if someone thinks of names like "Abdullah (slave of God)" or "Amatullah (female slave of God)"; "Abdurahman (slave of Merciful God)"; "Noor Udeen (light of the religion)", as being "Muslim names". Many of these types of names were already in use before the time of the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

However, we Muslims like to look for are names for our children with nice meanings or names to remind of certain qualities we hope for in our kids.

With that in mind, we offer some names we've been told have meanings of names (for girls) in Arabic like:

Afaaf - chaste, pure * Aishah – alive * Aliyah – high status & eminence * Aminah – at peace, fearless * Arwa – feminine of wa’l beautiful and radiant * Asma’ – elegance, loftiness * Basmah – happy expression * Juwayriyah – prophet's wife * Rahmah – mercy, compassion * Raniyah – fixed gaze * Razaan – dignified * Reem – white gazelle * Sarah – heartfelt joy * Shaima (Shayma) – virtueous * Zaynab – prefumed tree
