    Jamil?

    What are your thoughts on the name Jamil? It means "handsome, beautiful" in Arabic (which is one of the nicest meanings you can get for a name IMO). It's pronounced ja-MEEL, I think.

    What is your opinion on it?

    Doesn't do it for me. Not sure why, sorry! I know a Jamaal, whose name I think is lovely.

    Also a fan of Kamal, Kamil, and for a girl, Kamala (or Camille/Camilla for something more European.)
    And Remiel!

    Not really a fan. I have a number of friends named Jamila (girls), so Jamil just seems incomplete to me... even though I know it's the male form.

    I a nice enough name, it just sounds a bit off to me because I really love Jamal and the -meel part just doesn't seem as attractive.
