Other Origin(s):Hebrew
Meaning:Heard by God
Ismayl is a boy’s name of Hebrew and Arabic origin. A unique alternative to Ismail or Ishmael, it can literally be translated to “heard by God.” As told in Abrahamic tradition, this sentiment refers to the story of Abraham and his wives and their years-long yearning to have a child. When blessed with one, they choose this name for their firstborn as a declaration and renewal of faith. If you were in a similar boat, you can do as Abraham did and pick Ismayl to give thanks for your little miracle. The moniker may also help build a solid spiritual foundation in baby!
