According to tradition, Muslim parents name their child seven days after birth at an Aqiqah ceremony. The event is marked with the ritual of sacrificing a sheep or a goat and distributing the meat to the poor. When it’s finally time to name the baby, a lot of religious and spiritual reasons come into play. It’s worth noting that while less than 15% of Muslims in the world are Arabic by ethnicity, it is still the most common language for choosing Muslim baby names.
Muslims believe that they are called by their names on the Judgement Day, and so the baby names have to be meaningful, pleasant, and good. No wonder, their names are pleasant to the ear.
