I will not make the same mistake as my parents, I hope to have my grandchildren fully arabized and hope to see it. I went countless nights sleepless and suffered severe insomnia due to my Somali name. I rue the day when my parents chose me with such a name as the curse of the Somali race has infringed upon me, until I found about kunyas (abu Fuulan I was at the brink of despair.

My male children will be named after the holy saudi family in succession:

Muhammad
Abdullah
Abduraman
Faisal
Khalid
Amr
Fahd
Saud

My female children, meh they don't m,atter I will let my wife(s) decide.

Alphanumeric wrote:I don't know of such a thing as an "Islamic name". Names are judged by their meanings, not their references. There are some scholars who've said if you don't know the meaning of a name, you shouldn't use it to name a child, regardless of it's reference. Names like "Yasin", for one, has a meaning no one knows, but it's often used, especially by Somalis. Now, what are the meaning of Somali names? It seems the majority of them are simply adjectives, but those I'm most questionable about include references to "Waaq". Should they be as acceptable?

And what are names, anyway? Many Arabic names have varying origins.


Some scholars say it's disliked to use the names of surah such as YASIN. I dont like when somalis call themselves only by Abdi or Abdi followed by their surname e.g 'Abdi Hassan' Which means slave of Hassan subhan Allah.
Muslim (2132) narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The most beloved of your names to Allaah are ‘Abd-Allaah and ‘Abd al-Rahmaan.”

Oh and I dont get all this nonsense about we are not arabian so we should choose somali names :-@ :-@ . There are plenty of muslims name to choose from alhumdulillah.
