Meaning of name Ibrahim

Ibrahim is the Arabic form of the Hebrew name Abraham, handed down from the Bible by the first Jewish patriarch with whom God made a covenant in Genesis 15 that promises a multitude of descendants (as many as the stars) and “To your descendants I will give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates”- the land of Canaan (present-day Israel)'in perpetual possession.'In Genesis 17:5 God says“Your name will no longer be called Abram, but it will be your name Abraham, because I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.” This explains the meaning of the name Abraham. The Hebrew 'ab-Rabin translates Apart from the fact that Abraham was the father of Isaac, that he was the father of Jacob, that he was the father of the twelve tribes of Israel 'father of a multitude.' - Ibrahim is also equally important to the Arab people as to the Jews. This is due to Abraham (or Ibrahim to the Arabs) also father of Ishmael (or Ismā'īl), the founding father of the Arab people (Ishmael was actually Abraham's firstborn). For more on the story, please search for Ismael's name. Clearly Ibrahim /Abraham, effectively the father of a multitude of nations as the patriarchal figure for both the Arabs and the Jews.


Ibrahim did not appear on the US charts until 1990, mainly due to the fact that the United States has never had a large Arab population. However, now that Muslims make up about 4% of the American population, we are beginning to see more and more names of Arabic origin creep onto the charts. Names like Fatima have enjoyed crossover appeal, but names like Mohamed and Ibrahim are fairly restricted to the Arab-American community.
