What is the meaning of Shanawar?
All I found is the meaning, which is 'Informed, Knowing, Aware of'. Can you confirm its meaning and any reference from Islamic history?
This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff
Shanawar is not an Arabic name and it doesn't seem to be related to Islam directly. In Farsi it means "swimmer" or "vessel", such as a ship or boat. Urdu sites say it means informed and knowing, maybe the meaning also comes from "swimmer", someone who swims in the sea of knowledge and has acquired a lot of knowledge. However, I do not speak Urdu for this reason I cannot give a certain answer about this name.
