Personal experiences with the name Fatma: | Edit

At the beginning when I was a child I didn't like it much. Only older people liked it, parents, family and closer friends. Moving to the age of 19, I found out that Fatma is a unique original name although it's well-known. I'm not religious (spiritual) but i like how muslims look at the name with admiration and respect.

Meanings and history of the name Fatma: | Edit

It is more commonly written and pronounced as Fatima. It was the name of one of the Prophet Muhammad's (messenger of Islam) daughters.

It actually means a woman who weans her child affectionately. It was considered an virtuous attribute of Arab women and was given in the hope that the girl would fulfill what her name meant.

Nowadays, it is given to girls mostly because it was the name of Muhammad's daughter.
