Arash  is the name of an ancient Persian hero who is known as Arash the Archer, mentioned in the book known as the Shahnameh of the poet Firdousi. The meaning of Arash is "brilliant", "radiant", "dazzling". It is not an Islamic name, but Muslims can use it due to the fact that it has a good meaning.

    can we use any name which has a good meaning ?
    for example aaron and haroon have the same meanings
    is it forbidden for us to use such names ?
    is it mentioned in the quraan ?
