hi, I need to find an arabic boys name that i like and everyone here can SAY. At the moment DH and i just roll around laughing at all his Abdulla/Amed/Osama/Hamdi/Mustafa/ sugestions!!!! I need to find something that will work here and in the Middle East!!
I liked Ali but there are 3 under 5's in his family called Ali.
We're not very religious but DH would not even concider anything but an arabic name, ( baby will have all his names as is traditional)

any Ideas?

Adam and Haris spring to mind as cross cultural, or Zakariya which can be shortened to Zaki

Based on family/friends, some reasonably cross-cultural names might be:

Iskander (i.e. Alexander)
Sami (Sam)
Hanny/Hani
Rafik (could have the nn Rafi?)
Samir
Magdi/Magdy

I assume your DH is a Muslim? I can think of a few other names, but some of them might be too "Christian", iyswim? For example, we also have a Girgis (George) and a Youeel (Joel) in our family, but I'm not sure if those names are also used by Muslims?

Kuzey ("North") is Turkish, not Arabic nor even remotely religious. Eamon is Gaelic, I think.

Just thought: other (Middle Eastern) family and friends have "Frenchified" names like Henri, Charles, Alfred (!), Natalie, Virginie, Suzanne... but these are probably not "Arabic" enough for your DH grin

sleepcrisis has got it down, love all those names, they are perfect. My son has Idris but that's because it's also Welsh grin

Eamon is just another way of spelling Aymen, which is an Arabic name
