What does your name mean?

Salam,

Just the other day something came to my mind, I was wondering what do we keep with us our whole life besides our Good and Bad deeds. The Answer? our name. Since day one we have kept our names, but even more deeply all of our names hold meanings and define special characteristics.

Some of them even carry on famous influential figures in history. It’s just interesting how someone can call us by our name as long as we live but as we go about our life the question is, do we live the meaning or our name?

I looked up my name on multiple websites and this is what I got…

Saad – Male – rated 3/5

Meaning- Good Luck, fortunate

Origin – Arabic

Its Popularity amongst popular names in the US census real exclusive as you can see from the chart below, I got this from thinkbabynames.com

I never knew their can be multiple origins, according to the Aramaic origin, “Saad” means “Aid” or “Support”

Seems like altogether, I mean fortunate helper…haha.

According to Wikiepdia, my name means ”

Saad or Sa’ad is a male Arabic given name that means joy, happiness, and blessing. People named Sa’ad include:

Wow its a blessing to share a name with Sahabah‘s that were so great! Alhumduillah.

Well what does your name mean and it might be a little early but what will you name your child?

and oh yea, if your name means something positive which I hope it does, you should ask yourself am I living by what I really mean? Inshallah think about it..Waslaaam my brothers and sisters.

    My name was not spelled correctly it was suppose to be Naila but i write it Naela and the meaning is "Acquirer, attainer, or winner" and I believer that i am living up to that name 🙂

    Ive always loved the names Noor, Mahnoor, Kayanaat, Zuliekha, Aaliyah, Amirah, Musa, Hasan, Ayaan, Yusuf! lol i think i named too much!

    great post tho i think knowing the meaning of your name shapes you seriously!

    That is a very beneficial site, thanks for sharing.

    Sister Naela, I really hope you do not get offended or anything but you put down Zuliekha as a name that you love. Although it may sound pretty, I juss thought that you should know that it really isn't a name that Muslims should have because if you look at the story of Prophet Yusuf(A) the reason why he went to jail was because his masters wife. His masters wife was named Zuliekha and she was interested in him and he refused and she made it look like it was his fault and he was jailed. That was a much shorter version of the story, it juss comes down to that you need know the history, origin, meaning of a name because a name is very important.

    I'm really sorry if I have offended you, I really didn't mean to. May Allah forgive me for any mistakes I may have made.

    Take care inshaAllah.

    My name means guardian or protector :P. I remember I met an uncle at the masjid once and after we exchanged salam, he was like 'your father gave you a very beautiful name.' and then he quoted an ayah with my name in it and told me what it means. it was pretty amazing.

  7. Naela March 11, 2008 at 6:03 am #

    Radf,

    JazakhAllah Khair for sharing your story, I didn't know about that and look i learned something new. Imagine i chose that name! Thanx for the heads up! and no you did not offend me dont me silly.

    Take care inshAllah

    Beautiful name Saad. I think we should try to name our children after prominent islamic personalities.

  17. Munira Yusuf September 28, 2008 at 4:07 am #

    My name means intense light or brilliant light and is usually coupled with Siraaj in the Quran. It always gives me goosebumbs when I hear it being recited, cos it's like, that's Allah's words. And my name's part of it. How lucky am I??! Maybe I just get excited too easily.

    I am definantly naming my child Taariq (for a boy) inshaAllah, which means The Night Star. Or Sakiina (for a girl) which means Tranquility.

    Wasaalam.

    Munira.

  21. Nur October 17, 2009 at 2:22 pm #

    I liked the Idea of the topic.My name is Nur or (Noor) however you pronounce it and it means light.I'm an Arabic Muslim living in Egypt so any one with an arabic name and looking for it's meaning can E-mail me and Insha2 Allah I can help. Mr Sujmil there is no Arabic name which even sound close to this. Mr Saggar صقر in arabic that means A hawk and it is a very common name (represents power. Mahnoor is not an Arabic name (Although it's queit common) Actually it is Turkish and means (Moon light).Nadina I think your mum really made that name up But (Nada) Does not mean hope (Nada Means Dew) there is a close name to this one which is Nadeen (without the A) and it is also not Arabic

    Here is my e-mail Nur3lanur@ymail.com if you need any help with names

      I would love to work for a Neonatologist. I think it would be an extremely fllliufing job! Helping infants who may be critically ill and being a part of resolving their health issues sounds like a challenging yet comforting job. The fact that infants are helpless and completely dependent on us to survive means that much more. I could truly see myself loving every part of helping. I know some cases could be hard to understand how such a small being could be so ill or premature. In the end I am sure looking at how strong they are and how they fight for life from the second they are conceived, it really sounds rewarding. Then being able to send them home with their family to be surrounded in love, a true healing in itself.I could never see myself working for a Podiatrist. Simply put, I don’t like feet. Even though I am aware their job involves much more than just feet, I know given an option it’s not one I would ever veer toward. I can imagine this job could be rewarding as well and am sure those who choose it have their reasons. Not for me I am sure.

      There are two specialty ofefcis I would like to work in. My interest are in the nervous system and the endocrine system.In the 12 years I have been with my boyfriend, he has lost two sisters and a brother to different forms of lupus. He also lost his mother to the disease before 20 years before I met him. I feel working with an endocrinologist or neurologist I will be able to learn more on how these system works.The proctologist office would be at the bottom of the list. After experiencing a lower GI to rule out problems in my stomach. I refuse to go through that again.

    Hello, I do think your blog may be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
    in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic blog!
