Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Turkish
Yunis is a boy’s name of Arabic and Turkish descent. Derived from the Hebrew name Jonah, which can also be spelled as Yonah, it means “dove,” drawing religious inspiration from the Book of Jonah in the Christian Bible. Ending up in the belly of a whale mightn’t be the biggest of baby’s concerns, but a name as tranquil as Yunis can still remind them of the peace within when there are challenges ahead.
