Meaning of Kawkab

Kawkab means “star” or “planet”. In modern Arabic textbooks the word Kawkab is reserved for planets, while the word najm is used for stars.

So when the night covered him [with darkness], he saw a star/planet. He said, “This is my lord.” But when it set, he said, “I like not those that disappear.” {6:76}

    Hey this has the same triconsontal root as the Hebrew name kowkab (as in Bar Kochba) which is a boy’s name.
    כּוֹכָב kowkab a star, a prince
    Notes Strongs #3556: Noun Masculine;
    probably from the same as כַּבּוֹן [Kabbown ] (in the sense of rolling) or כָּוָה [kavah ] (in the sense of blazing);
    Meaning: 1) star
    1a) of Messiah, brothers, youth, numerous progeny, personification, God’s omniscience (fig.)
    AV translations: star(-gazer).
    Is there an Arabic name that utilizes KWB but is a masculine (since Arabic surnames generally do not derive from girl’s names.
