Meaning of Imran

Lisan al-Arab doesn’t tell us any specific meaning for this word, starting and concluding with “it’s a name”. It is the name of the father of Maryam, mother of Isaa (Jesus) (alaihum salam). It is mentioned three times in the Quran, and can only be used for boys.

When the wife of ‘Imran said, “My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated [for Your service], so accept this from me. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing.” {3:35}
