captivating or shining one
This is a popular baby name among Muslims, many of whom name their girls after the Prophet Muhammad's favorite daughter. Fatima was his only child to bear children, which is why she’s sometimes referred to as "the mother of all Muslims." The name is also frequently given to Roman Catholic girls in honor of the Virgin Mary, who appeared in the village of Fatima, Portugal. The name became popular in the US after a wave of immigrants came to America in the early 1970s.
