Meaning of Ayman

Ayman is a Quranic name for boys that’s directly mentioned in the Quran. Ayman means “blessed” and “good fortune”, and literally means “on the right side”. In Arabic (and Islamic) culture the right side is associated with strength, blessings and good luck.

And when he came to it, he was called by a voice from a bush in a blessed spot, on the right side of the valley: ‘O Moses, I am God, Lord of the Universe.’ (Quran 28:30)

In Ayman the stress is on the first part of the word, Ay, and the second part, man, is said quickly and with a short “a”, which is read like the “u” in humble. Don’t say Aymaan, because that changes the word to mean oaths.

    Allahamdulilah I have be blessed with baby boy, now the concern is abt naming him, My name is Hamed Hussain Mohammed and I wish to name my baby UMAR AYMAN Hussain, Hussain is family name and baby name will be UMAR AYMAN, I heard its not permissible in islam to have two names, UMAR is one name and AYMAN is other name, So my question is can we have two names for baby, and what exactly umar ayman means, to the best of my knowledge UMAR means Life and Ayman mean right side, or righteous, please confirm and suggest.

    @1: Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

    It is allowed for a child to have to names, therefore Umar Ayman is acceptable.

    Can this name ayman be kept for a girl?? Its usually kept as a girl’s name in india and pakistan.

  4. on Sunday 15th of February 2015 10:39:37 PM

    @3: Ayman is used for boys by Arabs. But if in your culture it is used for girls as well, then it is fine to use it for a girl.

    Ayman/Aiman is a name for boys. I do not understand why people in India and Pakistan are keeping it as a name for girls. It is a very common name for boys in Arabic speaking countries.
