  • Naming Your Daughter Hawwa(Eve)?

    Assalamu alaykum

    Am I out of touch or do Muslims not name their daughters Hawwa? I've never came across a 'sister Hawwa' or anything like that.

    Would you name your daughter Hawwa? If not, why not? Is it because there's stigma behind the term "Hawwa" i.e. desires?

    Are we neglecting our Mother Hawwa Radhi Allahu anha?

    In my society, there're so many Hawas.
    Don't rush your salat for anything, as you are standing in front of
    The One who is in charge of whatever you are rushing for!

      I've come across Hava, which is a version of it. Never Hawwaa though.

      Speaking of names that are hard to come across...


      Luts. We need more.

      Especially in these times. Also, lots of Salihs, hardly any Huds. :[

      And what about Dhul-Kifl ?

      Some of the names sound quite foreign and unusual but they're still names of anbiyaa alahyim salaam. If I'm someday married and blessed with a son when the wife asks maybe I'll say, "hmmm.... What do you think of 'Lut'. Lut Dhul-kifl."

        Lut, that's a good one.

        But Walaahi, I feel like we're sleeping on Hawwaa.

          Well, in our own community it might possibly be because pronounced correctly it sounds close to a couple of words in our language... One of them meaning something derogatory. Allahu a'lam.

            I've had 3 havas in my class at the same time, all Chechens thats why its hava and now hawwa, so hawwa would be great, very nice, shows the fragile naturw of woman since she was created from a rib, beautifull reminder

              Do you think the name is not as common because in Arabic Hawwaa(Eve) sounds very similar to Hawaa(Desires), or is that completely unrelated and irrelevant?

              Prior to giving this as much thought as I am now, I was always under the impression that Hawwaa(Eve)
              translated into Desires, and therefore no one wanted to name their children 'desires'.

              In Farsi, Hava is the general term for 'sky'. So for us, it wouldn't translate to, nor resemble anything negative. However, it seems that it's not the same with Hawwaa.

                It's a very popular name amongst somali women
                شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
                فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
                وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
                ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي

                  It appears to be the case.

                        MashaAllah, that is a great name.

                        But think about the problems that come with it:

                        non-Muslim: "What's your name?"
                        Son: "Mujahid"
                        non-Muslim: "Wow, that one's unique. What's it mean?"
                        Son: "One who partakes in Holy Jihaad"
                        non-Muslim: "Oh.. I see."
