Nasir Name Meaning

Nasir is a name of Arabic origin and means "helper, supporter". Although Nasir is not as popular in the Western world as he is in the Arabic-speaking world, he has achieved crossover appeal within the African-American community in the United States. This was influenced by the rise in fame of a New York rapper named Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones, better known simply as “Nas”. Nas first arrived on the American hip-hop music scene in the year 1994 and has since released multiple top-selling, critically acclaimed albums since then and has propelled him to international fame. Nas is also known for his public feud with Jay-Z, a "war of words" that went on for almost 10 years before the two rappers finally reconciled.


The name Nasir first appeared on the American male naming charts in 1996 (just as Nas' rap career was taking off). In the first 10 years, the name saw impressive jumps in usage as the rapper became more and more famous. However, this sudden and abrupt pop culture influence is now clearly on the wane; it has been falling in popularity since 2006. Today the name is rarely used at best and the decline in use over the past two years has been more dramatic. However, Nasir is both cool and confident and is still a great choice of name. We like the nickname “Nas” – it has a nice, laid-back tone to it. The Arabic etymology of the name (meaning the helper) also brings a certain friendliness to Nasir.
