Meaning:Dreams; Woods, forest
Baby is the stuff of dreams, so this blissful feminine name will place your cherished one amidst the stars. As a spelling variation of the Arabic Ahlam and Ahlaam, Ah-lam calls on your little dreamer to cultivate a rich inner world by simply meaning “dreams.” With its warm vowel sounds, Ah-lam flows like a sigh from the lips, softly gracing the ears like a lullaby. It is also believed to have roots in Chinese, with the element ā combined with the word Lam or Lin, most commonly meaning “forest” or “woods.” From daydreaming during class to counting sheep at night, baby Ah-lam can take pride in their natural and whimsical imagination.
