Arabic, Persian, and African name suggestions please!
A childhood friend of mine is currently around 7 and half months pregnant with her first baby.
She's of Caribbean heritage, Muslim, and lived in Iran for 16 years so speaks Persian, and is a Canadian citizen with perfect English. So she's got a lovely range of names to tap into.
She's pretty sure it's a boy, based on an undesired comment by her doctor during an ultrasound, but we're still looking for girls names. She's designated me as the resident name searcher, so I come to you for assistance.
She hadn't starting looking at all really until now, but I do know names she'd thought of were Aaliyah (prn the Arabic way Ahh-liyah), and Jasmine. I like Jasmine, but it's sooo overdone.
And she'd like to use an African name in the middle, she has no interest in it being day specific though, as in "born on Sunday" type of names.
I'd greatly appreciate some name suggestion of Arabic, Persian, and African backgrounds.Laurel - 21 - Toronto
