    Muslim names that are easy in English

    My friend just found out she's pregnant (!!!) and asked our circle of friends for names and I took it upon myself to find my future nephew the best name, lol, but I'd like your help! We're muslim, so she'd like a Muslim name however, one that's easy to pronounce in English since we are also Aussies. Since she doesn't know the gender of the child yet, I've written both girl and boy names. If you could add some names I'd really appreciate it, also, which do you like?

    I have a friend who named her daughter Karina. It's so pretty!

    How about Amira or Layla for other girls' suggestions? These are my 2 faves.
    Sorry, but i dont have anything to add for boys' names.

    From your boys list though, i like: Elias, Zane, Adam, and Zachariah.

    Mohammed is pretty international, I met Muslims from different countries named Mohammed or its variations. If I remember right, it is a very important name for Muslims.
    I suppose Elijah(Ilyas?) is a prophet in Islam. Ismail is nice but it is written like "it is mail". Suleiman and Zakaria are another two I can think of.
    For a girl Layla, Hava and Fatima were the first to pop in my head. Almira and Asiya are pretty.
    Sorry if it wasn't helpful, I am Christian and don't know much about Muslim names

    I used the name Safiyya for my daughter. It's pronounciation is similar to Sophia.

    For other girl names, Layla is beautiful and sounds familiar enough.

    Boys name suggestions : Omar, Adam, Elias and Zane.
