Meaning of Ahmad

Ahmad is a direct Quranic name for boys. It has the exact same meaning as Muhammad: A person in which praiseworthy traits are abundant, or one who deserves constant praise due to their good character. It is one of the names of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad {61:6}

The feminine version of Ahmad is Hamda. If you love the name Ahmad and Allah blesses you with a girl, you can name her Hamda.
