some thread spurred me to pose this question, so to begin....

Salmaan - which means peace

was also the name of the famous companion Salman al farsi

it was also the name of the prophet suleymaans father. Salman is bigger peace, Suleymaan the sons name is lesser peace.

the girls names Salma and sulaym being the equivalent to Salman and suleyman.

may i please remind very 1 that the 'saab' bit in my name isnt actually my real name - it means friend in urdu.

I dont know the exact definition of my name because there are so many variations of it e.g.: amir, amar, ameer, aamir, etc.

the emphasis in my name is on the A - that is why there is two A's :P

the female version is probably Ameera. or Aamira.hehe

My name in latin means, 'Starlike', 'of the stars' or 'shining', in hebrew it means 'part' (part of something) and in arabic, its derived from a bigger word but I don't want to let that out, although I've heard horrible meanings for my name in arabic as well.... Also, my name is some type of wine/cider in some foreign country..

But I hate my name... I'd like to change it to something else, but I don't know what....:confused:

I'm sure most people think of it as declare yourself as a part of Islam, or declare yourself part of humanity, which as it is the only other option aside from sis/bro in Islam, it seems like it is to say you are not part of Islam.

I am Ishallah a part in Islam, but I cannot deny I am also a part in Humanity. Each to their own at the way they look at it and maybe mine is too philosophical for a message board status - but you did ask.

A non-Muslim is not my brother in Islam and of the right way by my beliefs, but he is still an undeniable descendant of Adam-ul Islam and therefore is an undeniable brother in humanity. Humanity is only of this life, Islam extends to the afterlife. Therefore, whether the Lord accepts me with His mercy and Grace as a Muslim none of us will really know until that Day (we can only strive to be accepted)....but until that day I know for certain that I am part of Humanity as I come from the same place as everybody else.

My name is Akbar

Which means "Greatest"

However used in the human sence it is a Ism-e-Asghar, (i.e. the lesser of names) and does not denote the bearer as being the "Greatest" however it is merely taken as an lower adaption of the Ism-e-Azam (i.e. highest names) of one of the attributes which can only be attributed to Allah swt.

try this site out:

http://www.guyana.org/features/muslim_names.html

press ctrl + F and type 'rehana' in the search box. click on 'find next' and your name should come up. it says its of arabic origin so it must be insha Allah.

Rehana: A handful of sweet basil

Fatma is not my real name but I prefer not to use my birth name as it is a Christian name. My name Fatma was chosen for me and as you know it is a variation of the Prophet's (PBUH) daughter Fatima. I have been told that it means radiating face but I am not quite sure considering whenever I see it ... it always says the name of the Prophet Mohammed's (PBUH) daughter.

there's two variations of my name:
1) Amir (emphasis on 'A', pronounced arm-ear) which, according to a book of muslim names and one site, means ruler, conqueror, i think king too...:p.
2) Amir (emphasis on the 'I', pronounced am-eer) which means prince.

But seeing as my name is spelt double 'a' i guess i'm a ruler (not the measuring tool, the OTHER one :p). hehe, i can say " I OWN YOU " and get away with it as it is a partial truth....well i did say partial.
