Synopsis

Over 3,000 Muslim names and their meanings with an in depth look at the structure of Arabic names and Westernized versions, along with regional variations.

Many Arabic countries have now adopted a Westernized way of naming. This is the case for example in the Levant and Maghreb countries where French conventions are followed, and it is rapidly gaining ground elsewhere.

Most Arabic names are originally Arabic words with a meaning, usually signaling the good character of the person. Kar?m means "generous", ma?m?d means "praiseworthy", and both words are employed as adjectives and nouns in regular language. Arab newspapers sometimes try to avoid confusion by placing names in brackets or between quotation marks.
