English Muslim Names-100 Best Muslim Names that Sound English

English-Sounding Muslim Names. Every culture and every language has a unique way of naming things. But sometimes despite the diversity, or perhaps because of it, some names tend to ‘cross-over’. These are the names which can be found in all languages, either in the exact same way, which is rare or with certain levels of variations in spelling or pronunciation. However, it is easier to recognize them because they also share similarities in the same ways.

Such names have roots in every language, but due to the linguistic differences, they are pronounced in a distinct manner. The meanings also tend to vary, depending on the language in which the name is being spoken. There are also ‘bilingual names’, the type which are pronounced the same in two or more languages.

Modern Muslim parents in Western countries like the United Kingdom, USA, etc are constantly on the hunt for unique Islamic names for their children which can be westernized easily. The main reason why they do this is fear of persecution and of not being accepted. This is the biggest concern immigrant parents face in non-Muslim countries. The bullying and suicide rate in such countries is alarmingly high.

Another reason is that Westerners tend to look down upon and mispronounce names they deem as ‘difficult’. Such blatant racism has been called out and publicly shamed in recent years, however, it might take time to completely eradicate such way of thinking.
