Boys Names Girls Name
Most names in the Muslim world come from the Arabic language, although there is some borrowing from Persian and Turkish (especially in Iran and Turkey). The majority of the names are derived from vocabulary words.Islam is of course a major influence on naming practices. The multiple forms of Muhammad are extremely popular, as are the names of his family and descendents, such as Omar, Ali, Bakr and Fatima. Military leaders are often honored as well; for example Tariq and Amir. The Koran is another source of names. Ibrahim and Mariam are two examples of names from the Koran that have English biblical equivalents (Abraham and Mary).
