80 Quranic Baby Names With Meanings

If you’re a Muslim or have a Muslim friend, you’ll know that almost all their names are derived directly from the Holy Quran. It’s believed that when a child is given a Quranic name, he will forever be reminded of the Holy book and its verses, which he should reflect upon at every stage of life. It also drives home the idea that the believers turn to the Quran for all the confusion and dilemma they face, even when it’s about naming their newborn.

Of course, there are a few rules and regulations about picking a Quranic name. All the words in the Holy Quran have special meaning and significance. Some words are not suitable to be used as names due to their context, meaning, or historical background. It was also directed by Prophet Muhammad to avoid names that have negative, impractical, or strange meanings. Hence, parents should pick names with pleasant meanings for their children. Names of messengers, prophets, and Allah are also encouraged to be used. Most of the names mentioned in the Quran are in the masculine. If you want to use it for the baby girl, you need to add the trailing ‘ah’ to the name/word. Below is MomJunction's extensive list of baby boy and girl names with meanings sourced directly from the Holy Quran.
