Are there beautiful Muslim girls

100 Muslim Power Names: Hit List & Suggestions

Muslim girl names are widespread in Arab countries. Muslim parents in Europe and in other regions of the world also often choose female first names from Islamto express their personal relation to religion.

However, there is not always a religious reason behind the choice of name. Some parents opt for children's first names from Islam because there are simply many beautiful girls' names in the Koran and in Muslim countries.

Muslim names for girls are often very poetic. Since the moon plays an important role in Islam, many first names refer to this celestial body, the stars, light and brightness:

  • Badriyah: resemble the moon
  • Kamar/ Qamar: moon
  • Najmah: Star
  • Sahra: luminous
  • Eleonora: God is my light
  • Munira: radiant
  • Only / Nour: Light

Are also popular muslim names for girlswhich, through their importance, relate to nature. "Zarah”Means for example“ blossom ”or“ flower ”and“Daliya”Comes from“ dahlia ”.

Other Arabic girl names refer to a good character or a pretty appearance of the child, for example "Halima”(“ Meek ”) or“Schafika”(“ Grateful ”).

If you previously believed that Islam had no names for strong women, you can rest assured: because even girls' names that refer to courage and strength make it onto the name hit lists. With "Hafsa" and "Subaia”For example, there are two beautiful first names for girls that mean“ lioness ”or“ little lioness ”.

Religious parents do not always choose a child's name based on the meaning alone. Many women appear in the Koran who can serve as namesakes. This includes various women from the environment of the Prophet Mohammed. Since Islam also refers to sacred texts that are also used by Jews and Christians, overlaps between Muslim, Jewish and Christian maiden names are possible.

In the following list you will find a wide selection of great Muslim girl names.
