  • 💖🧡💚 Double tap if this is a question you get from people! It’s the fate of anyone with an unfamiliar name. The thing about Arabic names, or any name originating from a language with a different alphabet or writing system, is that there are often many ways to spell them, and some ways are better than others!⠀
⠀
I’ve always enjoyed being a bit different so I was quite happy to explore unfamiliar Arabic names with my husband each time we were expecting a baby. I was actually excited to choose names that had no connection to my linguistic cultural or religious heritage and find a name we both loved. Which is probably good, since from Ibrahim’s perspective he most definitely wanted Islamically-appropriate Arabic names for all his children!⠀
⠀
What were the things you thought about and prioritised when choosing your children’s names? Drop me a DM, I’d love to know. ⠀
⠀
While we explored names, I mulled over the ‘best’ way to spell the ones we considered. Ease of spelling for non-Arabic speakers was absolutely a factor in name selection! At the time I mainly considered ensuring we found a spelling that would lead to near-enough correct pronunciation when the name is read by someone for the first time who didn’t know the name. And overall, for our seven children, I did pretty well (with one exception, which I will share on another post!).⠀
⠀
What I didn’t think about so much was how someone else, when hearing the name for the first time, would spell the name and what they might struggle with.⠀
⠀
Getting spelling right is just one of my ‘five steps to choosing a beautiful Arabic name’ in a guide which is free when you join the Haluna Happy Names family. The others are Meaning, Pronunciation, Association and Initial. Click the link in my bio above 👆🏼and I will send the guide straight to your inbox.⠀
⠀
My Arabic names blog on my website (in the works! InshaAllah going live soon!) will include posts that help you with each of the five steps in more detail as well as tell stories of many beautiful Arabic names. So you can make sure you never pick a 🍋 for your children to have to live with.⠀
