The name, in Arabic, is an expression meaning "flower." It is used in the'spanish language as well, although, nowhere i've read has been able to give the'spanish meaning of the name. I'm giving this name to my baby if It's a girl. It's really pretty. I like it.

My husband's gunning for the name David for our unborn child if It's a boy, but I'm n't sure. A lot of middle-aged men (like my father in law!) have the name and while it is a good, strong name, I fear It's a bit too common, like John.

12/9/2022 10:01:14 AM

My sons name is David, despite It's popularity he was the only David in his year at school., in Australia. Of course now he is a teenager he calls himself "Dave".

11/15/2022 4:27:50 PM

As a fellow David, I have to say every David I come across as well as myself is actually beloved but David's like the Biblical King expect to be treated like royalty (arrogance). Outside of that David's have great character and are intelligent.

When parents cann't think of a baby name in'the hospital while they are filling the paperwork to get birth records, social security cards, etc. for their baby, the government goes ahead and fills the first name as "baby" and the parents change it later. All in all it looks like the indecisiveness of having to find the "perfect" name has gone down.

9/24/2022 3:58:28 AM

This Is the best and most well know name in the country, and people respect you if you have this name

9/20/2022 5:41:08 PM

My boyfriend's name is David, and we both dislike it. Part of the reason because of us are athe'sts, and do n't agree with the idea that David is chosen because of religion. I call him by his named name, Benji, and so does the rest of the world besides his parents. David is a very common name, and It's very... ugly. It doesn't just roll of your tongue, It's like coughing up a hairball.

9/17/2022 6:33:52 PM

My son (college-age) is named David and there weren't too many other Davids around when he was growing up. And if there were, well, It's a classic name. It's n't like there suddenly being a bunch of kids all with flash-in'the-pan names. If I'meet an'ther Tyler, I'm going to plotz.

My name is David. There's n'thing wrong with me, but everyone else who's name is David is ither annoying, fat, stupid, or a liar. The only exception is my dad. I love him. So I would say, if You're going to raise your kid right, name him David. If n't, please don't add to a already bad-ish reputation.

12/13/2021 4:36:36 AM

Every David i've ever met is an a****** fact, if I hire someone to do work for me or have a choice in who I deal with, I stay away from Davids. I'm moving to Europe, thankfully, where I don't beli've David is a common name.

There are many Fionas in Scotland. Sometimes shortened to Fee.

Maybe a bit too common (though I don't think boys really care about this sort of things as much as girls do), but you really can't ever go wrong with it.
