Top Muslim Baby Names

When choosing a name for you baby many things should be considered outside of how beautiful the name itself is. Consider any other meanings in other cultures or languages, as well as how the name fits together with the surname and any middle names. Choosing a name for a baby is believed to be an important part of welcoming them to the world, so be sure to find one that not only jumps out to you as being beautiful but will also stand the test of time.

Muslim baby names are chosen with longevity and honor in mind. It is said that when choosing a Muslim name for a newborn child you should always choose names with positive, beautiful and good meanings. A name is seen as a baby’s first gift in life. Interestingly it is also believed that it is an infant’s vested right to be honoured with a beautiful name.

Generally Muslim names originate from the names of prophets and important notable people from Islamic history, with the theory to keep them in memory with the hope their footsteps can be followed.

Arabic is spoken by over 300 million people and remains one of the oldest commonly spoken dialects. For other ancient names be sure to check out Latin baby names and Greek baby names.
