Meaning of Judy

Judy is the name of the place where the ark of Prophet Noah (alaihi salam) rested at the end of the flood. Abu Ishaaq Az-Zujaj, the great linguist and grammarian of the Arabic language (died 311 Hijri) says it is a mountain in Amad (modern Diyar Bakr in Turkey), others say it is a mountain in Mosul in Iraq.

This name sounds exactly like the popular Western name Judy, which is short for Judith, or someone who comes from Judea. Scholars say that the fact that this name sounds exactly like a Christian/Jewish name doesn’t create a problem as long as it is acknowledged that the name is sourced from the Quran and not from Christian/Jewish culture.

This name is mentioned once in the Quran:

And it was said, “O earth, swallow your water, and O sky, withhold [your rain].” And the water subsided, and the matter was accomplished, and the ship came to rest on Judy. And it was said, “Away with the wrongdoing people.” {11:44}

    I really like to Arabic name Judy and my friend just named her daughter Judy. Too bad I’m expecting again a son…. 🙂 In Middle East they also use a similar name Joud (جُود) but personally like Judy better for girls. I keep hoping for a girl, Insha’Allah next time better
