Meaning:Evening caller, night visitor; Morning star
Tareq is a boy's name of Arabic origin rooted in the verb taraqa, which means "to knock" or "to strike." Thanks to the Arabian Peninsula's hot climate, visitors are common at night once the blazing hot sun has set and so this name has come to mean "evening caller" or "night visitor." Tareq also takes inspiration from Aṭ-Ṭāriq, the eighty-sixth sura of the Quran, meaning "morning star." You may find baby gazing at the moon and constellations, drawing their energy from the night sky and your warm arms around them. They'll be a total night owl!
