7607 Arabic Baby Names With Meanings


There’s no dearth of inspiration when it comes to baby names. Some look up to their family tree while others pick the name of their favorite television or movie character. But some people like to stick to their culture while selecting a baby name, especially the Arabs.

As Carlyle had said, giving a name is a poetic art. Arabs do not just look for meanings in names. They are also concerned about how the name sounds and if the syllables flow well or not. They want a name that rolls mellifluously from the tongue and has elements that fit well with each other. Yes, everything is taken into consideration while naming in the language of the angels, Arabic.

Arab names also come in two versions, which are pre and post-Islam. The pre-Islamic names were usually derived from nature, vocabulary words, or occupation. Some pre-Islamic names also reflect personal characteristics. The post-Islamic names are influenced by 99 attributes of Allah and Islam. Variations of the name Muhammad are also considered. And almost all the Arabic names have Arabic words. So you even have the option of making your own Arabic name. Below is Momjunction’s extensive database of arabic boy names and arabic girl names with meanings.
