30 modern Muslim Baby Girl Names for Your Angel

My husband’s family members are huge movie buffs. So much so that, there is an established Sunday-evening ritual where the whole family comes together and watches a movie before bed while munching on some super-greasy appetisers! Cute, huh?

So, it did not come as a surprise to me when my mother-in-law suggested the name ‘Huma’ (after Huma Quereshi – the actress) for my eldest, and the whole family did a happy dance!

What’s better than one kiss you ask? Well, TWO kisses!

Even though there are thousands of modern, unique baby girl names out there on the Internet, finding the perfect name for your baby girl can become an overwhelming task unless you have a ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’ inspired family! So, mommies and daddies, in an effort to make your life easy, I have hand-picked and compiled some of the most mesmerising, traditional, yet modern Muslim baby girl names that I came across while conducting my research! Here goes:

Needless to say, I most definitely also suggest my own kids’ names – Muraad (which means desire) and Huma (which means ‘daughter of King Bahman’). After having successfully named our kids while making the family super-stoked at the same time, my husband and I felt like we hit a home run! After all, your beautiful baby deserves a beautiful name! Am I right?
