    Arabic names

    I work with a lot of Arabic speakers. Here are my likes/dislikes of names I hear most often:

    Girls:
    Alya (Ah-lee-ah) - love it!
    Aziza - definitely one of my favorites
    Nesrin (nes-reen) - kind of pretty
    Munirah - ok
    Sabbah - ok
    Huda - just ok
    Dorra - cute and very versatile
    Bushra/Busra - very pretty!
    Mariam - beautiful, maybe even more so than Miriam

    Boys:
    Meshari - really like this one
    Meshal - kind of sounds like Michelle, which can be confusing, but I like it
    Fahad - detest this one
    Abdullah/Abdulraheem/Abdulelah/Abdulaziz/Abdulrahman - These and Muhammed/Mohannad are the ones I hear ALL THE TIME. Getting a little tired of all the repetition. I actually just read an article recently that Mohammed is now the #1 boys name in the UK :O!
    Aziz - love this one without the "Abdul" in front.
    Saleh - ok but for some reason it's hard for me to say correctly
    Ahmed - ok
    Omar - ok
    Khaled - like this one
    Taariq - one of my favorites
    Ali - like this one, short and sweet
    Adel (pron. AH - del) - nice
    Saud (sa - OOD) - not a fan
    Naif - pronounced Knife...kind of cool but would be a bit weird in an English-speaking country
    Ibrahim - knew a very unpleasant individual by this name sooo I'm not a fan. BUT I guess it's a nice variation of Abraham.

    I'd love to hear your opinions on these! Which ones are your favorites/least favorites? Are there any other Arabic names that you like/dislike?

    I love Alya, Aziza, Nesrin, and Dorra! I don't like Huda or Bushra though, the rest are alright.
    For boys I like Meshari, Aziz, Saleh, Khaled, and Adel. I'm not a fan of the overly popular ones.
    My friend is named Feryal (pronounced Fairy-Elle) and that name is one of my guilty pleasures.
