Characteristics of Abdullah
Etymology & Historical Origin - Abdullah
Abdullah is a transcription of ‘Abd-Allāh, an Arabic name meaning “servant of God” from the elements ‘abd which means “servant of” and Allāh (i.e., the Islamic God). ‘Abd-Allāh was the name of the Prophet Muhammad’s father; although the Prophet never knew his father since he died before Muhammad was born. There are several names used for Muslim boys that feature one of the many titles given to Allah (e.g., servant of the Giver, the Wise, the Patient, the Magnanimous, the Generous, the Kind, the King, and so on). Abdullah gets straight to the point: a servant of Allah. Humility before Allah is an important component in Islam; and a value which is celebrated in the naming customs of Muslims. Abdullah is currently a Top 10 boy’s name in Iraq. It is also the name of the current Kings of Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
Popularity of the Name Abdullah
Abdullah is quite new to the American list of boy names currently in circulation; it only first appeared on the charts in 1996. Most likely Abdullah’s usage of a male name is mainly restricted to Muslim-Americans, a group which constitutes a very small percentage of our overall population. Therefore Abdullah hasn’t shown a lot of growth on the charts. Until the Muslim and/or Arabic population grows more significantly in the U.S. we don’t expect Abdullah to rise much further on the list. It's a very culturally and religiously specifc name confined almost entirely within the Muslim-American population.
