Which is better Yasmin or maryam (pronounced Miriam)?
Potential daughter will have Arabic roots.

Maryam Yasmine.

I like both the names. Only chose that way because Yasmine makes me think of contraceptives.

Maryam Yasmine.

Thanks, pretty unanimous then

I prefer Yasmin Maryam. It also has the advantage that people won't have problems pronouncing/spelling Yasmin, but might with Maryam.

Love both names btw. Miriam was on our shortlist and Yasmin would have been, except had already been used by family.

Maryam first. Lovely name. Yasmin is fairly pretty but is is the name of a very well known brand of contraceptive pill so if you're in the UK, I'd use it as a second name only.

Maryam first.

They are both lovely but Yasmine is more common so I'd use it as a middle name.

Both lovely names, but I would go for Maryam Yasmine

Maryam Yasmin for me too. Maryam is lovely, not keen on Yasmin though that is due to personal association

Yasmin first smile

Prefer Maryam Yasmin too.

I like Maryam as a name (why not to ma-ree-am pronunciation?). Also Jasmin as a alternative to Yasmin. Anything but Fatima (or risk the nn Farty or Fatty as a relative does!).

Two beautiful names there. I like both combinations, but slightly prefer Maryam Yasmin.

If you want it pronounced Miriam you would be better spelling it Miriam. Maryam looks like marry am. My sil is merieme, I like that spelling.

Maryam first

True, I've never met a Maryam who is called Miriam.
