Adil is a boy’s name that means “righteous,” “fairness,” and “justice.” A popular masculine given name throughout the Islamic world, Adil comes from the Arabic word adl, of the same meaning. Adil not only has laudatory meanings, but kingly associations. The Adil Shahi dynasty ruled the Sultanate of Bijapur in Southern India for centuries, and many of its rulers were called Adil. If you want a slightly more uncommon spelling, Adel is also a great option.
