Meaning:God listens; Heard by God
Ismal is an Arabic boy’s name that draws inspiration from the Hebrew name Ishmael. Meaning “God listens” or “heard by God,” the name Ismal gets its heaven-inspired translations from the biblical story of Hagar, an Egyptian maidservant who cries out to God for help from the contempt of her mistress, Sarah, also the wife of Abraham. Baby’s troubles may or may not be as trying, but with a name like Ismal, they’ll certainly know where to look when the going gets tough.
