Meaning:Father of a multitude of nations
Destined for any little leader, Ebrahim is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “father of a multitude of nations.” Ebrahim comes from the Hebrew name Abraham, also borne by a biblical character who was given direction by God to build a new nation in the land of Canaan. The name Ebrahim is a real medal-winner in the Middle East, too, and was once sported by Ebrahim Shah Afshar, the king of Persia during the Afsharid Empire. Leaping to the throne the moment it lay free before him, the king couldn’t let the opportunity pass. And with any luck, that same promise of power may present itself to your one and only Ebrahim.
