Halimah is a girl’s name of Arabic origin. Also spelled Halima, Halime, and Halimeh, this pretty name means “gentle” and “mild-mannered.” If your little one already has a sweet and tranquil disposition, this could be the perfect name for them! Halimah al-Sa'diyah was the Prophet Muhammad’s foster mother. Other famous bearers include a sixth-century princess of the Ghassan kingdom, and a former sultana of the Anjouan sultanate in the Comoro Islands. More recently, it was brought into the spotlight by Somali-American model Halima Aden.
