Please share some english sounding muslim names. We would like something that is easily pronounced but is still muslim or arabic origin. Many thanks.

Has anyone suggested Esme or Esther? Both are Persian in origin with one meaning 'beloved' and the other, 'star'.

Otherwise, Lila, Leila, Zara/Sara, Sahara, Miriam/Maryam, Safiya and Sofie are all names of children that I've taught who've come from Muslim families.
