Answer

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Rahemeen in the Quran means "merciful ones", "people who are merciful." It is used as a name for both boys and girls in Desi culture. It is pronounced as (RA)n + (HE)lmet + (MEAN)ing.

Rahmeen is a Farsi and Kurdish word that means "merciful", "compassionate", it comes from the Quranic word Rahm (mercy and compassion) + Farsi een, which is an extension added to words to make the meaning stronger, i.e. it makes it mean "very merciful". Rahm comes from the same root as Rahemeen mentioned earlier above. You can use it for a girl or a boy. It is pronounced as (RU)n + (H)umble + (MEAN)ing.
