- While you’re browsing the Muslim Names directories, every time you found a Muslim Names you like; which sounds good to you, have good meaning and it feels somewhat right for your baby, just jot it down somewhere, along with it’s meaning. Then after that, let say your managed to list a number of 10 great Muslim Names for your baby, the next step is to recite each one of it out loud and decide if you like how it sounds, because you’re going to be calling your child that name all his or her life.
