Meaning of Khuzaimah

Khuzaimah is an Arabic name for boys and girls that refers to a type of tree known as the “Gabal Elba dragon tree” in English (scientific name Dracaena ombet). It is the name of many companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions, such as Khuzaimah bin Aws, Khuzaimah bin al-Harith, Khuzaimah bin Thabit and Khuzaimah bin Aasim. There is also a Sahabiyyah (female companion) whose name is Khuzaimah bint Jahim.

    @1: As mentioned above, there is a female companion of the Prophet (Sahabiyyah) whose name is Khuzaimah, therefore your claim is incorrect. The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, would change any name that he found inappropriate, but since he didn’t change the Sahabiyyah Khuzaimah’s name, it shows that it is an acceptable name for girls.

    If you can provide a fatwa from a respected source, we will be happy to look at it insha’Allah.

    Hafiz ibn hajar asqalani rta has mentioned in his book al asaba fi tamaiyyaz az sahaba (encyclopedia of the companions) the name of khuzaymah bint jahm (Female companion) through abu umar.So its both boy and girl name.
