Does anyone know around what date the name Imran came about? (Ie is it relatively recent or a very old name?)
Also does anyone know which was the Arab region it originated from (ie Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Syria etc?)

Also in Arab naming is is common place to put Abdul as a prefix to the main name? And is Abu a short form of Abdul (ie in the name Abu Hamza or Abu Imam)?

Thanks.
