Nadia, Samina, Aneesa, Mariam, Sadia, Hina, Taniya,Nasreen, Risham, Tahira, I guess I like all these names because they are my family members and friends names too. They are really beautiful.

I noticed Nadia popped up in the arabic names, what does it mean in Arabic.

In Russia, Nadia is short for Nadezhda, or Hope in english.

Just curious?

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.

And Fatima, for you, some of my favorite boys names: Majid, Siraj, Jibril, Jalal, Nabil, Yusef, Naeem, Zubayr, Zaid, and Dominic.  (...one of these names is not like the others...)

Peace, ummziba.

jazakAllah khair sis ummziba for understanding hidden meaning  n starting names for baby boys, sometimes i go a bit shy, hopefuly sis 222dnallohc dont mind

well my favourite names are Muhammad Abdullah, Muhammad Ahmed, Muhammad Almujahid, Yahya, Zakariya, and basically any nice name and put Muhammad infront

i was listening to 'The life of Muhammad' by Imam Anwar al-awlaki and he mentioned that he met some1 called Muhammad the tenth and he asked him reason behind it and the person goes that his father likes the name Muhammd so much he named all his sons Muhammad with first, second, third n so forth at end, subhanAllah
