Cairo is a boy’s name and place name that comes from the eponymous capital of Egypt, Cairo. Also called al-Qāhirah in Arabic, this strong masculine means “the strong” or "the victorious." This may be in reference to the Mars, the vanquisher planet, which was reportedly rising over the city at its founding. Cairo has a deep and rich cultural heritage and is the largest metropolitan area in Africa and the Arab world. As a given name, it is a bold and powerful choice for baby, especially if you want to honour your Egyptian or Arab roots.
