The name “Muawwiz”

Q: By Allah’s grace I have been blessed with a baby boy about a month back and I am searching a good name for him. I would like to know the meaning of the following arabic words, please help.

1. Muawwiz

2. Munajid

3. Munajjid

4. Muajjid.

I have named him Mohammed already and one of these I plan to be his second name. Also I would be very grateful if you can send me the proper Arabic pronunciation.


A: Keep the name Muawwiz (one who provides protection).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
