Meaning:Lion, brave; tiger
If you’re hoping baby will grow up to be as brave and bold as the king of the jungle, then no name is more fitting than Babar, meaning “lion” or “tiger” and “brave.” Of Persian and Pashto origins, Babar is a boy’s name that is also popular in Urdu- and Arabic-speaking parts of the words, particularly in Pakistan. It is most often associated with Babur, the Turkic ruler of present-day India and founder of the Mughal Empire. If kings of humans and cats aren’t impressive enough, Babar is also the name of the popular French children’s book character—who is, surprisingly, not a feline, but an elephant.
