Meaning of Tahmina or Tehmina? is it a good name for a girl?


This is an official answer by Staff

TahminaTahmeenehTahminah (with various other spellings) is a Farsi name for girls mentioned in Shahnameh, the national epic of the Persian speaking world. She was the princess of Samangaan (in Ahvaz, Persia), and Rostam, one of the heroes in the book, takes her as his wife and together they have a son, Sohrab.

It is derived from tahm (strength, power) and the meaning is strong, powerful. Since the meaning is good it is an acceptable name for Muslim girls.

It is pronounced in two ways, both of which are valid: (TU)ck + (H)umble + (MEAN)ing + r(U)n | (TU)ck + (H)umble + (MEAN)ing + r(E)d

چو تهمینه از کار رستم شنید
جز او در جهان جفت خود کس ندید

When Tahmeeneh heard of Rostam's deed
Other than him in the world she couldn't see anyone as a life companion for herself

-Shahnameh of Firdowsi

    Also just because someone said tahmina and tahmot sound same and mean same don’t believe them. I’m tahmina. And am my love I have been strong and had a sense of power of you like to say it.

    Tahmina protects people. Not slander them. She loves and supports. Not cause harm. She is a protector.
