Your little munchkin will rule your heart, mind, and undoubtedly your sleep pattern, so why not bestow a name that celebrates their power? Up for the challenge is the boy's name Sultan. This bold choice is rooted in Arabic and means "strength," "authority," “ruler," and “king.” It's definitely befitting a baby destined for greatness! Sultan has been a title for Muslim sovereigns since the 11th century, the first being Maḥmūd of Ghazna. Countries like Oman and Malaysia still use it for their rulers.
