    Sahir can be two different names. One of them is a good name that means “one who stays up at night”, “one who takes care of a sick person throughout the night”. You can read about this name here: http://quranicnames.com/sahir/

    Sahir can also refer to the word “magician”. But this word is completely different from the name Sahir. In English they seem the same, but in Arabic they are written differently and have no relationship with each other, as they are derived from different roots.

    For this reason you can use the name Sahir, and if people say it means “magician”, you can tell them they are thinking of a different word. The name Sahir comes from the same root as Suhair and Suhaira, which are good names used by Muslims.
