Don't cry Angela!

Found Nadia here: http://www.ummah.net/family/fem.html

It says it means "the beginning, first".  Have a nice day.

Peace, ummziba.

~Salaam!~

I love the names Aaliyah ("highly, lofty, sublime" in Arabic) and Ihsan  ("Charity" in Arabic).  Of course Farrah (Farah "Joy" in Arabic!) is nice too!  

I also love Isolde, Isys, Daysia, Arianna & Zoey!

Below is a site with Arabic names and meanings.  Good Luck!!

Thanks for letting me know.  I love names that are cross cultural and with the adoption process, I'm looking for a good name to go with our last name.

Daley.....perhaps I should find a good Irish name like Katherine...Katie Daley....or Patrick Daley....hmmm

Assalamu alaikum,

Many Arabs I know have named their first born son after their husbands father, a common cultural practice.  I also know some Indians whose daughters were named by the husbands sisters, again a cultural tradition.

Any other naming traditions out there?

Peace, ummziba.

In Russia your middle name is a derivative of your father's name.

Gregory, become Gregorovich for a boy and Gregorevna for a girl.

Ivanovich or Ivanova, for Ivan.  Etc

They also have diminutives.  Alexander and Alexandra becomes Sasha.  Ludmilla becomes Ludya.  ect.

And they almost never use their last names unless its a first time meeting or a formal business meeting.  They go by their diminutive with friends and family and aquaintences use their first name and patronimic....example   Ekaterina Igorevna Petropavloskaia would be Katya to friends.  Ekaterina Igorevna to her teachers and coworkers.

I love names.  Of course in Japan, your family name is first and your given name is second.
