As modern technology, international travel and cross-cultural business deals are rapidly making our world a smaller place, we find ourselves coming into contact much more frequently with people of other cultures. Most Muslim names Arabic connotations are unique and have beautiful meanings. For example, the name "Muhammad". The meaning of the name of Muhammad is 'He who is worthy of praise'. It is estimated that more than 15 million people in the world bear the name Muhammad. This name also has many variants, like Ahmed, Mahmoud, etc.
Basically, traditional Arabic baby names are given in full consists of the kunya (father/mother of X), the ism (the actual given name), the nasab (son/daughter of Y), the nisba (an adjective indicating one's place of origin, religion, or some other identifier), and one or more laqabs (nicknames to provide further identification), in that order. If there is another conventional name by which the person is traditionally known, it is called the 'urf (custom). There is a logical structure to the Muslim names Arabic naming, often used in the Middle East, which makes it possible to understand a person's recent ancestry.
The kunya, actually is such a basic element, so popular a means to refer to people, that one is usually given even to people who have no children, or without reference to whatever children they might have. Here it is important to emphasize some Arabic names meanings imply that the names are inseparable units, like Abdullah (Slave of Allah), or Abd al-Rahman (Slave of the Merciful One) or Abd al-Nasir (Slave of the Victorious One) there is no such name as Abdul or Naseer, as one part of the name is meaningless as a separate name.
Given Arabic baby names and family names based on the 99 names of God used in Islam are quite common among Muslims from many nationalities. Many of these names sometimes give accurate insights into Arabic names meanings of the names Arabic God, Allah is known, like al-Malik (the King, who is King of kings), al-Haqq (the Truth), al-Halim (the Kindly, who is both forgiving and kindly disposed), al-Nur (the Light, illuminating both earth and heaven), and so on.
A good Arabic baby name would always mean something humble and in praise of Allah. The names Arabic world forbid are those, which indicate equality with Allah. These are classified as names Arabic religion prohibits, or "haram" (prohibited) in the Deen (religion/way of life of a Muslim). Those names which are accepted are called "halal" (permitted). For example it is forbidden to use the name of "Al-Rahman" because "Al-" means "The" and "Rahman" is the same as the Name of Allah, and no one should compare himself to Allah.
The names of Muslim women are similarly significant. A woman may be named after a significant and important Muslim character such as Amina, who was Muhammad's mother, or Fatima, who was Muhammad's daughter. A woman is also commonly named after an honoured character trait such as the name Djamila, which means beautiful.
