Baby name suggestion


My due date is on 29th march 2018 i would like to get some names both of boys and girls. 1st and 2nd name eg: Jeza Maryam.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

May Allah Ta’ala grant you an easy birth and a healthy child. Aameen.

Keeping one name for the child is also sufficient. There is no need to keep two names. However, if one wishes to keep two names as is the custom in some place, then that too is permissible. [i]

Here under are some recommended names for boys:

Abdullah, Ubaidullah, Abdur Rehman, Mohammad Ibrahim, Mohammad Yusuf, Mohammad Yunus, Mohammad Ayyub, Mohammad Ismail, Abu Bakr Siddique, Umar Farooq, Uthman Ghani, Ali Murtuza, Abu Hurairah.

Here under are recommended names for girls:

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
