Question

Can you please give me the meaning of Sheherazade?

Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

It is permitted to keep the name “Sherazaad” for your daughter. “Zaad” also means “daughter of” or “offspring of”. Therefore the complete meaning is “daughter of a brave person”.
