127 Kurdish Baby Names With Meanings


Parents often think hard and long about a name for their newborn. There are countless websites and books to help you pick a name that sounds good and has a beautiful meaning. Since the popular given names in the US can be traced back to ancient words, how about choosing an ancient name itself, something like a Kurdish name.

Kurdish is a northwestern Iranian language spoken by Kurds in the Western Asia. The language has three dialects – Northern Kurdish called Kurmanji, Central Kurdish called Sorani, and Southern Kurdish, called Pehlewani. The language also shares traits with Iranian languages, especially Persian, primarily due to the intense and longstanding historical contacts.

Kurds, mainly Iraqi Kurds, have now adapted to the Arabic naming conventions. But the traditional Kurds opt for a tribe or geographic name as the last name and the grandfather’s or great grandfather’s personal name as the family name. Hence, the name includes a personal name and a surname. For the middle name, the Kurds use their father’s and grandfather’s or mother’s and grandmother’s personal name. Children adopt their father's family’s name as with most of the Western families. But Kurdish women do not take their husband’s family name on marriage.
