Meaning of Asim

Asim is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “shield”, “protector”, “guardian”, “rescuer”. It is used directly three times in the Quran, in verses 10:27, 11:43 and 40:33.

[But] he said, “I will take refuge on a mountain to protect me from the water.” [Noah] said, “There is no protector today from the decree of Allah, except for whom He gives mercy.” And the waves came between them, and he was among the drowned. (Quran 11:43)
