Meaning of Umar

Umar is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “life”, “long-lived”. Umar is commonly used by Muslims and Arab Christians out of love for Umar ibn al-Khattab, a great Muslim leader and companion of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon the Prophet and his companions.

And Allah created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop; then He made you mates. And no female conceives nor does she give birth except with His knowledge. And no aged person is granted [additional] life nor is his lifespan lessened but that it is in a register. Indeed, that for Allah is easy. (Quran 35:11)
