Baby Names for Muslim Boys and Girls
Authentic Research from Primary Sources - No copying from other sites!
Everything on QuranicNames.com has been researched and verified by our staff using classical sources like Lisan al-Arab (classical Arabic), Qamoos al-Muhit (classical Arabic), Dehkhoda Dictionary (ancient and modern Persian), and The Sultan Qaboos Encyclopedia of Arab Names. See our full references list.
Direct Quranic Names
"Direct" Quranic names are words that are plainly mentioned in the Quran, such as Maryam and Musa. We reviewed a list of all of the words used in the Quran and chose the ones that can be used as baby names. For the list see the Direct Quranic Baby Names page.
All Quranic Names
To expand the selection of names on our site, we have created the "indirect Quranic name" category, which includes Arabic names that are derived from linguistic roots that are used in the Quran. For example, while Muhammad is mentioned in th Quran, Hamda is not. But since they both share the same root, we conider Hamda an "indirect Quranic name". This allows parents to choose names that, even though not plainly mentioned in the Quran, their meanings and linguistic origins can be found in it.

In Islam all baby names are acceptable, from all languages, as long as the meaning of the name is not opposed to the teachings of Islam. For this reason we have created our non-Quranic names section to include names that are not found in the Quran but that are acceptable for Muslim babies.
These names can be from Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Latin, or any other language. Non-Quranic does not mean non-Islamic. Examples of some common Islamic non-Quranic names are Uthman, Hamza, Fatima, Zainab and Khadija. Non-Quranic names include Western names, such as Serena, Lorena and Elizabeth.
