I am 12 weeks with DC3 and already have 2 DS's, my DH is muslim but I am not, we would like a muslim name that works well for both his family (African) and my family (Irish). We are living in the UK, so that is also a reason for having a name which is easy to pronounce/spell!
We have a girl name picked but we always struggle with choosing boys names! Any suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated as we have nothing so far!
Thank you in advance!

Thanks again for all the responses, DH said he likes Jamal or Jamil, what o you think of those? I do like them but have a feeling that he wouldn't actually stick with them as in his culture you have to name your baby after someone! which also makes it more difficult!!
I have always liked Adam and Noah but he has said not with DS 1 and 2 so doubt he will agree this time!

Isitme1 we had already picked a girls name so was looking for boys names.

We found out today that we are infact having DS3!! so the search for a boy name continues!

I like Bilal, Omar, Zain and Idris from the suggestions.
I also really like Sulayman but my DH's uncle lost his son last year and that was his name (he was only 2) so although it is very normal for many family members to have the same name in his culture I feel that would be insensitive to choose that name! Sulayman was DH's grandads name.

Anymore suggestions or thoughts on the names I mentioned?

Jibril? It is the Muslim form of Gabriel.

I really like Bilal - I was keen to give it to ds as a second name but dp doesn't get on with his father and it's his dad's name so I lost out on that one sad.

Oh yes, I like Jibril also, my problem is DH oesn't like discussing baby names so I end up fining lots that I like then when he eventually discusses names with me he vetoes all of them! sad

sorry my D is having a problem, have to press it really hard to work but keep forgetting!

My nephews are soulyman and Moses, their dad is Muslim, mum is not. I think both those names work well in both cultures, they really suit them too.

I like Idris from the ones you mentioned,you hardly meet anyone called Idris! so its more unique but obviously without being wacky or anything

My nephew is Muslim, they also wanted a more English sounding name and went for Zane.
