Meaning of Iyad

Iyad is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “reinforcement” (something that strengthens another thing), “support”, “powerful person”, and “anything that shields something”. It is derived from the Y-D-Y root which is used in a number of places in the Quran:

Then God will say, ‘Jesus, son of Mary, remember My favour to you and to your mother: how I strengthened you with the holy spirit, so that you could speak to people in childhood and in maturity; and how I taught you the Book, and wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel; how by My leave you fashioned from clay the shape of a bird and blew upon it, so that, by My leave, it became a bird, and healed the blind and the leper by My permission, and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and how I prevented the Children of Israel from harming you when you came to them with clear signs, when those of them who denied the truth said, “This is sheer magic.” (Quran 5:110)
