Modern Muslim men's names have passedlong and tortuous way of becoming. Now they represent a special mixture of Arabic, Turkish, Persian and other nicknames. Such a mixture was conditioned not only by historical processes (for example, wars or the development of new lands), but also by religious trends.
A sufficient part of the names was formed inpre-Islamic era, when the main borrowing came from the Arabic language. However, they became Muslim only due to the influence of the people who carried them. Further, with the adoption and wide spread of the religion of Islam, many nicknames were borrowed from the Holy Scripture. Up to the present time, the Muslim names of men are replenished with new ones, which gives parents a wide choice option for their child.
But this is a rather complicated process! There is a proverb "As a ship you will name, so it will float". With regard to this situation, we can say that choosing modern male Muslim names, one should pay great attention to their interpretation. The nickname leaves an imprint on the personality and character of the person. That is why even the most euphonious names, meaning negative quality, will either be rarely used, or even be banned.
As in many other cultures, boysit is customary to call good, good and euphonious nicknames. This is designed to protect them from bad deeds and all sorts of misfortunes, and also to give a blessing and a long life.
