In-shaAllah, my wife will be delivering our first baby at the end of this month. Can you please provide me some 5 names of boy and 5 names of girl to name our baby? It will be more useful if you provide the names along with its meaning.
One should choose names from amongst the names of the prophets, sahaba, tabiyen and pious persons or from the beautiful names of Allah by adding Abd in the beginning. The meaning of such names is not important just it is enough for its blessings that it is the name of any pious person.
For girls one should choose any of the names of holy wives, holy daughters and good and pious women. You should have written your favourite names and then we could have advised you a suitable name. However, we are writing some names on your demand. You may keep the name which you like:
For Girls: Kulsum, Umm Habibah, Fariha, Zainab, Atikah.
For Boys: Yahya, Idrees, Khalid, Luqman, Ashraf Ali.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
