Salamun Alaykum brothers and sisters, My wife is expecting our second child, and I have put in many hours thinking of names. The ultrasound shows it may be a girl "most likely". My wife is totally unsure of what to name her, infact she has also thought of many names however she just seems like she is overwhelmed at the moment with the pregnancy so I try and help make suggestions and usually we build from whatever she likes. We named our first child (daughter) Kawthar. So far we have shortened the long list down to a few choices given that my wife is in her 8th month. For arguments sake we have settled on girls names for the time being and if it is a boy we have a few suitable names we like. If our child is a girl we like: 1. BILQIS (The Queen of Sheba) mentioned in the Qur'an in Surah An-Naml 2. YAQEEN meaning certainty, lack of doubt, belief, faith. This choice seems more like a boys name but I wanted to hear input I guess of what everyone thinks. I personally think Yaqeen can be a unisex name like safa or noor. *Let me know what you think about this* 3. IZDIHAR meaning blossoming, derives from Zahra. 4. TASNIM meaning fountain or spring in paradise I Surah Al-Mutaffifin Please let me know what you all think. Also, we are open to suggestions. JazakumAllah Khair. H.
@hameedeh.....you win! This might be a good idea after all. So.....my daughter has done her part and picked appropriate tribal names for the child (sorry, @magma....all our names are "unisex" unless you go out of your way to gender it for some reason...like " Snow Goose Woman" or something.) SG is still dragging his feet. Cannot decide. Says he never had to name a baby before. Even the suggestion that he name the possible son after his dad or grandpa and the daughter after his mom or grandmother has not broken the stalemate ( is there a rule about that I don't know about and he is not telling me?) I'm sure he will come up with something, but maybe priming the pump at this point will help. DD says she would like a name that could be used on either side of the world with ease, but will not hold him to that because she " did not care one bit what the dominant culture here thought" when she picked the her part of the name. So maybe somebody here will have the wisdom to come up with an appealing choice by The end of February.
Salam, I am looking for a name that is both Iranian and Shia. I like the name Anousheh, but I live in the UK and so am afraid that it will be too difficult to pronounce. I also really like Ayla, but would like to know if it is a Shia name/acceptable amongst Shia's and also I wanted to know of its cultural origins, because I know only a few Ayla's which are iranian. Regards
