Is Amelia an Islamic name?


This is an official answer by Staff

Amelia is not mentioned in the Quran or any Islamic sources. Arabic references online say it is a Latin word.

The closest Islamic name is Amal, which means hope.

Since Amelia has a good meaning, it is acceptable for Muslims to use, even if it is not from Arabic or Islamic sources.

    Amelia is a very nice baby girls name but it depends because the name means beautiful in some websites but it is not a indirect Muslim name.

    My daughter’s name is Amelia, from it origin and meaning there is no harm to call your baby Amelia, Rasulillah has advised Ummah to avoid calling their children names with no good meaning since bad names affect our children directly.

    All the sahabas were none Muslim before they accepted Islam Alhamdolilah. The Prophet Muhammed pbuh didn’t tell them to change their names, this means they had non Islamic names , but it does not matter as long as it has a nice meaning.

    As if you guys might know hazrat Omer never changed his name, so there is no such thing as Islamic name it might be Arabic name, Indian name or English. I also named my daughter Amelia and it’s a beautiful name

  17. on Wednesday 24th of March 2021 03:06:17 PM

    I am naming my daughter Amelia, it’s a beautiful name. Comment 8&2 as long as it has a beautiful meaning, you cannot be judgmental. Many Muslim Chinese and Indians have names we’ve never heard about

    I named my daughter Amelia, since the name Amelia is having direct arabic meaning Trustworthy and Beautiful, I did not have any hesitation, Alhamdulillah!

  20. on Sunday 11th of June 2023 08:14:17 AM

    My daughter is Amelia too and it has a great meaning ;trustworthy and beautiful. People should not be so judgmental and say it’s not a Muslim name.

  22. on Monday 2nd of October 2023 08:30:09 PM

    In response to comment 9 Adam was the first man on earth and the first messenger of Allah surely you cannot be comparing such a noble name to Amelia which doesnt hold its status nowhere near enough to Adam

  23. on Wednesday 11th of October 2023 07:00:33 PM
