148 Lebanese Baby Names With Meanings


Having a baby isn’t just about changing diapers, decorating nurseries, and waking up several times at night. It’s also about finding a good name for your wee one. Most parents today look for a classic and traditional name, just to be on the safe side. But if you don’t want your baby’s name to drown in the crowd, you have to step out of your comfort zone and pick a name from a different culture or country.

The naming customs and conventions of Lebanon is similar to Arabic naming conventions. Names derived from the Holy Quran are a favorite, followed by Biblical and names inspired by locations. But that doesn’t mean Western names are not used in Lebanon. Anthony was the top name for baby boys in Lebanon last year.

A typical Lebanon name consists of a personal name, followed by the father’s personal name and grandfather’s personal name or family name.
