"You will be called on the day of
Judgement by your names and your fathers names, so therefore, choose
beautiful names" (Sunnan of Abu Dawud Hadith 4930)
Naming a child with a beautiful and honourable name is very
important. The Prophet (SAW) always chose names with good and
beautiful meanings, even telling people to change their names if
they had unpleasant meanings.
The names followed by an asterisk* have an Arabic meaning and may be
in current use but, they are not normally used by Arabs because they
are either descriptive words, surnames or are used in the wrong
context regarding naming a child. They have been included for
information purposes only.
We hope that the following names will help you to decide a suitable
name for your child, Insha’Allah.
