205 Afghan Baby Names With Meanings

Looking for a name that reflects the richness of the Afghan culture and also has a deep and significant meaning? Then scroll below for MomJunction’s list of Afghan names for boys and girls. But before that, let’s dig a bit into the naming conventions in Afghanistan.

The first name of an Afghan is basically a compound or double name such as Ahmad Khan, Ahmed Navid, or Bashir Bijan. These names could have an Arabic or Islamic component or a regional connotation. The last name refers to their profession, tribal affiliation, place of birth, or honorific titles. This may even result in people within the same family having different surnames. But it should also be noted that in Afghan, surnames are more prevalent in educated and urban families, especially in those families that have been in contact with the western world.

Besides, there isn’t any standard orthography in Afghanistan. People write names as it is pronounced in their dialects. Hence, the same name can be pronounced and written differently in various parts of Afghanistan.
