^I think it means "Deer" sis not 'cow' as we know/think it. The male deer is called a 'buck' or 'bull' and female a 'cow' or 'doe'.

In arabic deer is 'ghazal/ghazelle' but 'Maha' is probably another type of 'ghazelle'

My Husband also loves the name Mariam..inshallah if Allah swt gives us kids we will choose that name.



It's a name thats mentioned approximatley 35 times in the Qur'an :D

فَلَمَّا وَضَعَتْهَا قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّي وَضَعْتُهَا أُنثَى وَاللّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا وَضَعَتْ وَلَيْسَ الذَّكَرُ كَالْأُنثَى وَإِنِّي سَمَّيْتُهَا مَرْيَمَ وِإِنِّي أُعِيذُهَا بِكَ وَذُرِّيَّتَهَا مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

"And when she was delivered she said: My Lord! Lo! I am delivered of a female - Allah knew best of what she was delivered - the male is not as the female; and lo! I have named her Mary, and lo! I crave Thy protection for her and for her offspring from Satan the outcast."
(Surat Aal-e-Imran, Verse 36)


Ohhhhh I luv the name Maryam.

Maryam, may Allah be pleased with her a woman of true beauty and purity

It is indeed, found in the saharan distinguished by its big beautiful eyes and used in arabic prose to denote a thing of beauty and found in the Quran (well sort of).
