Choosing suitable names for our 7 bundles of Syrian-Australian joy was a fun and challenging activity. Arabic names were a given, but which ones, and why? And how should we spell them? With every new baby, I learnt something. And we made some mistakes! Name-ism explores the meaning behind Arabic names, and how to choose them successfully in English. If you enjoy it, share it with anyone who is having a new baby, or who, like me, loves Arabic, and loves names.
