Some examples of Arabic boy names that are rooted in powerful traits are:

  1. Akeem (wise and intelligent)
  2. Hassan (handsome)
  3. Jamal (good-looking)
  4. Kareem (generous and noble man)
  5. Omar (prosperous)

What is the rarest boy name?

Many Arabic baby boy names do come from the more ‘traditional’ list. However, if you are looking for rare and unique examples, you might consider the following for your baby boy:

7. Hafeez
A more modern name, Hafeez means ‘to guard’ and may be seen much less often than the more popular Arabic boy names. If you can see your baby boy growing up to be loyal and protective, this is a wise choice!

8. Adeem
This softer name would suit a cute baby boy and literally translates as ‘rare’.

Many Muslim boy names date back centuries and are extremely popular even today. However, one stands out as the most famous and common Arabic male name:

9. Mohammad
Thought to be the world’s most popular male name, there are variations on spelling including Muhammad and Mohamed. All have their roots in the prophet who founded Islam, with the name literally meaning ‘praiseworthy.’ If you’re looking for a name full of tradition for your baby boy, this would be a strong choice.

What are common Arabic names?

Aside from Mohammad, some other popular Muslim boy names include:

10. Ahmed
A popular Arabic boy’s name, Ahmed may be seen with some variations on spelling. The name means, ‘one who thanks God.’

11. Ali
This name means ‘sublime’ and would be a worthy choice for your perfect baby boy.

12. Amir
If your little prince needs a fitting title, then look no further. Amir was a title before it was a name and translates as ‘prince.’
