Being a Muslim one should keep in mind that the Muslims names of Muslim baby must be meaning full. Muslim of the world have their own recognition in every field of life, likewise, Muslims are recognize by their Muslims names from other nations. For Muslims it is very important to give their child a beautiful, meaningful name for muslim. The prophet (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) advised parents to provide with best of the education to their children. They can start by giving kids beautiful, meaningful, Islamic name, which is full of Allah’s blessings.

Our also taught to his followers that children should be given good names. That meaningless name, those having unsavory and unpleasant connotations should be avoided. He has asked to avoid to give people bad names, we can obey our prophet by giving our children good names, which could not be abused or have bad meanings. He has said, “Keep the names of the noble Prophets, Allah loves most the names Abdullah and Abdul Rahman. The most truthful names are Harith and Humam, while the most disliked are Harb and Murrah (war and bitter)."

Some of the Psychologists now came to the conclusion that a person’s name has effects on his life. But Muhammad(PBUH) had discovered the fact, and conveyed to his followers already 1400 years ago.

But since the globalization widespread, Western culture throughout the world, it has become customary amongst Muslims not to take into connivance the meaning of the name when naming a child. Many do not even bother to ascertain whether it is permissible for one to keep such a name or not.

You can find thousands of Islamic name and meanings. We are further trying to provide a vast collection of Islamic name on the site to help you find the right name for your baby. Our main goal is to make it easier for the Muslim parents to visit our site and find meaningful Muslims name in short time.

Another aspect of a person’s name is that it bespeaks a person’s religion. Hence the name of a Muslim is usually of such a nature that by the mere mention of it, the listener understands that the person so addressed, is a Muslim. It is for this reason that our elders laid great emphasis on keeping good and pleasant names.
