Meaning of Mahnoor
Mahnoor is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “moonlight”. It is formed from Mah (Persian and Kurdish for “moon”) and Noor, a Quranic word that means “light” and is the source of one of the Beautiful Names of Allah: al-Noor. While the Persian/Kurdish word Mah is not mentioned in the Quran, the word Noor, which is derived from the N-W-R root of the Arabic language, is mentioned in various places.
He is the One Who sends to His Servant Manifest Signs, that He may lead you from the depths of Darkness into the Noor (Light) and verily Allah is to you most kind and Merciful. (Quran 59:9)
