219 Pakistani Baby Names With Meanings

Are you expecting a baby and so looking for inspiration for a perfect Pakistani name? Then you’re at the right place.

Naming male babies after the prophets and female children after important women featured in the Quran is a common practice in Pakistan. Apart from that, names derived from Turkish, Arabic and Persian languages are also common. Baby boys can be given as many as two or three first names at the time of birth. Out of these names, one is selected to be the ‘most called name’. Baby girls are not given more than two names.

Just like most of the Muslim nations, the use of surnames or family names is not as prominent as in Western countries. If the person has more than two given names, the full name would consist only of the given names. If he wants, he may append his father’s most called name to his given name.

Another convention is to prefix the given name with a title associated with their tribe. As for the women, the full name is composed of only the first names, appended to father’s most called names. After marriage, her full name is attached with the most called name of her husband.

Here’s a comprehensive list of Pakistani baby boy and girl names to get you started on the naming journey.
