Note: The exact pronunciation of each name depends on the original language.

Muslim names do not need to be Arabic names; they can come from other languages as long as they have a significant meaning. Some languages do not have an English equivalent for every letter, so they are transliterated into English letters here and the exact spelling may vary. Please refer to the original language for correct pronunciation.
