Can I use one Arabic letter, i.e. “Ghayn”, as a baby name?


This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

You can do this since there is no reason to prohibit it. However we've never seen this done before, therefore cultural considerations should be taken into account. For example Arabs may find the name funny, while people from other cultures may accept it without an issue.
