Moroccan names for girl

 

 

You are expecting a little girl in the coming months and you are still hesitating about the choice of her first name? Have you thought about a moroccan name for girl? Their Mediterranean sound warms hearts!

 

For eyes Morocco had a list of authorized names for girls and parents were not allowd to choose a name for their girl out of this list. Following various complaints from citizens about the authorities’ refusal of certain first names, the Moroccan High Commission for Civil Status issued a call to order, and children will finally be able to be named according to their parents’ free choice. Even if this list of authorized moroccan names for girls is longer applicable we find it interesting to share it as the most traditional moroccan names for girls are part of it.

As we tell you, Morocco allows now more than these names but there are still some rules related to femenine moroccan names. In particular, it is strictly forbidden to call oneself as God. Also “The criteria of choice must avoid non-Moroccan first names, or names composed of or inspired by names of cities, villages or tribes. The first name must not, moreover, undermine public order and morals.”

Meaning of some moroccan given names for girls

 

 

The Arab world abounds in names that are more exotic than tasty to pronounce. They are Fadila, Billal, Naima, Saïd, Ilham… But beware of you, innocent future parents, because behind each name is hidden a literal translation that will play tricks on your toddler’s mektoub.

 

Choosing a name according to its meaning is a concept that encompasses all cultures, from the Incas to the Japanese, but seems to be neglected by other cultures specially in developped countries. Let´s take a look to the meaning of some moroccan femenine names:

 

 

1- Inès: corresponds to the phonetic transcription of the Arabic feminine first name Înâs, meaning “benevolence, caress, companion”.

 

2- Anissa: this Moroccan first name for daughter means “sociable, sympathetic” in Arabic. Little girls with the first name Anissa are endowed with a strong will and determination. Their personality is double-faceted because, beyond this stubbornness, little Anissa likes solitude and seems somewhat marginal.

 

3- Jamila:  is a feminine first name of Arab origin, means “of great physical and spiritual beauty” in Arabic. Little girls with the name Jamila are shrouded in mystery. Enamoured of adventure and very attached to their freedom, they are attracted by everything that proves to be avant-garde. From time to time, they feel the irrepressible need to indulge in intense reflection.

4- Kenza: means “treasure” in Arabic. Little girls with the first name Kenza are reserved, suspicious and cautious. However, when their confidence is gained, they are generous and give a lot of themselves. They like to feel safe within their family cocoon.

 

5- Samia: this Moroccan first name for girl means “superior, sublime”. Little girls with the name Samia are very pretty! Loving to highlight their feminine attributes, they like to seduce and please. Capricious and moody, they can change their ideas or mood radically from one minute to the next.

 

6-Monia: this Moroccan first name for girl means “desire” in Arabic.

Little girls with the first name Monia are extremely sensitive, despite the fact that they tend to hide their emotions. Attached to their freedom, they like to analyze and ask themselves questions, while having a taste for detail …

7- Layla this Moroccan first name for girl means “born during the night” in Arabic. Little girls with the first name Layla are independent and they like to lead! Avid for power and freedom, they don’t like to be resisted. Often endowed with a radiant beauty, little Layla’s are nonetheless moody and impulsive.
