This is NOT a Quranic name, but Muslims can use it since it has a good or neutral meaning.

Meaning of Fatima

Fatima is the name of Prophet Muhammad’s daughter, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his family and companions.  The meaning of Fatima is a child who has been weaned off breast milk. The linguists of the Arabic language aren’t certain why this word is used as a name. It is not mentioned in the Quran, whether directly or indirectly. But since it is the name of the Prophet’s daughter, Muslims consider it a high-status name.

    It is also a popular name for Catholics in Latin America (for much different reasons). They pronounce it “FAT-ima.” In the U.S., that version of the name is much more common. I grew up having to correct how people pronounced my name. But it is a lovely one.

    My middle name is Fatima, so I really like it. Also, my parents told me it meant good smell.

    I don’t think it is one who is weaned, I think it’s one who weans, ie a wet nurse or community mother
