Meaning of Zayed

Zayed is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “prospering”, “in abundance”, “progressing”, “one who is increasing in all good things”. It is derived from the Z-Y-D Quranic root which is used in many places in the Quran.

Then as to those who have believed and worked righteous works, He shall give unto them their hire in full and shall give unto them an increase out of His grace. And as to those who disdained and were stiff-necked, He shall torment them with a torment afflictive. And they shall not find for themselves, against Allah, a protecting friend or a helper. (Quran 4:173)
