Today I heard the name of the girl as Aysha Zalvin. I had never heard of this name before. I searched about it on the net, but I did not find a reliable source. Is it an Arabic word, and what is the meaning of it?

Edit:Aysha zalvin was the name of an Arab princess(It was stated by the family of that girl).

  • Can u explain the reason for downvote – user29535 Feb 14 '17 at 9:51
  • This question is off-topic for this site. "Questions on Muslim culture or behaviour unrelated to the teachings of Islam are off-topic here." – Sakib Arifin Feb 14 '17 at 12:53
  • While it does seem borderline off-topic, the name "Aysha Zalvin" has some Islamic connotations to it. I think it'd be best to just let the question be answered: it'd hardly be a burden for someone sufficiently familiar with Arabic names. (It also resembles previous questions here and here.) – Rebecca J. Stones Feb 14 '17 at 13:23
  • Is Zalvin a first or last name? on the whole it doesn't sound Arabic (but maybe you used a strange transliteration) so the rule is does it mean something bad is it related to an other deity, if yes than it is not an appropriate name else it is fine. – Medi1Saif Feb 14 '17 at 14:41

According to my knowledge, this is not an Arabic name, at least I've never heard it in any of Arabian countries. Aysha is a female name and that is correct. But Zalvin is a family name and most of the time families name in arab culture refers to male. So if your child is a male then it is acceptable to name him as Zalvin.

  • @user29535 that is helpful information to edit into the question (and, ideally, it should have been there in the original version). – Rebecca J. Stones Feb 14 '17 at 15:25

    @user29535 thank you for the extra info. Since I lived and raised my whole life in several Arabian countries ( Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and UAE) I regret to inform you that this is the first time that I hear about such a name. – Krebto Feb 14 '17 at 15:36
  • @user29535 Also Arabic name also have a clear meaning of the name. In my case, 'Raad' name means thunder in English. So any name in Arabic has a clear name that indicates a proper meaning of name itself. But in your case, Zalvin is not an Islamic name nor Arabic name. – Krebto Feb 14 '17 at 15:46
  • I asked a U'lama, about the name, and he said that it was the name of Arab tribes. @Raad In your answer,did you mean family for tribes. – user29535 Feb 14 '17 at 17:11
