Ramadan is a boy’s name of Arabic origin and means "to be consumed by grief and sorrow" and "parched" or "scorched." Parents may be drawn to this melodic name if baby is born in the month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim lunar calendar. Ramadan as a baby name pays homage to the holy month of fasting universally celebrated and observed in the Islamic faith where the doors of paradise are opened and evil ceases to exist. Having baby arrive during this joyous time of worship is an honor and blessing that deserves recognition with a name such as Ramadan.
