Muslim Names

Muslim and Arabic names are used throughout both the Muslim and Arabic worlds, which are closely linked. However, there are some Muslim names which are not Arabic, and are instead of Persian or Turkish origin. Due to importance of the Arabic language in Islam, a large majority of the world's Muslims do use Arabic names. Muslim names are based on a traditional naming system; most do not simply have a first middle and surname, but a full, long succession of meaningful names. Our muslim baby name pages include gender and pronunciation, meaning, popularity info, notable namesakes and pop culture references about each name. Browse our large list of Muslim names and find the best name for your baby.
