Need detailed meaning of the name “Humayl”


This is an official answer by Staff

Humayl, also written as Humail, is an ancient Arabic name for boys with uncertain meaning. It is derived from the H26-M-L root which has meaning of "water flowing without obstruction", "rain falling silently". It is not a Quranic name directly or indirectly, but since it doesn't have a bad meaning Muslims can use it. Humayl was the name of a Sahabi (companion of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions), whose full name was al-Humayl bin ad-Damoun, and this is the reason why some people use this name for their children.

Humayl is pronounced [(H)ot + p(U)t] + [(MAY) + p(L)ay] and is written as هُمَيْل in Arabic.

A related name is Hummaal, which is a synonym of Humayl and similar to it in meaning and origin, though it doesn't seem to be a Sahabi name.

    Humayl means small print Quraan in Urdu dictionary. It was also the name of a sahabi (RA). The name can be used for Muslim boys
