Umar = Umar is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “life”, “long-lived”. Umar is commonly used by Muslims and Arab Christians out of love for Umar ibn al-Khattab, a great Muslim leader and companion of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon the Prophet and his companions.

Umair = Umair is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “life” and “long-lived”. It is derived from the Ain-M-R root which is used in many places in the Quran. Umair is also the name of a brave Sahabi (companion of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions), whose full name was Umair bin Wahb.

Abu Bakr =Abu Bakr is an indirect Quranic name for boys that is formed from Abu (“father of”, “like”, “full of”) and Bakr (ancient name of Arabian tribes, “young camel”), both of which are Quranic words. Muslims like this name out of love for Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, the closest companion of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
