Actually it IS of Portuguese usage as well for the person who's saying it's Arabic. It's my mother's middle name, and she's Portuguese. There's a famous town in Lisbon I believe called Fatima. It's used for BOTH Arabic and Portuguese.

This name is quite common in lots of places isn't it? It's not one of my faves, but it's okay. Lots of people in Brazil are called Fatima.

In Morocco you'll find many Fatimas. Tradition has been to name at least one daughter (usually the first) after the Prophet's daughter. It's normal to find an old granny named Fatima, with a daughter named Fatima, who has a niece named Fatima. (like with my in-laws).

I didn't like the name Fatima much when I was little, but I like it more these days. Not only is the name popular in Muslim countries, but also in Spanish and Portuguese-speaking areas.

Oh G-d, a name can be of one of more nationality or origin, you small minded IDIOTS! So cut this 'actually it's Arabic' crap because it is 101% definitely BOTH Portuguese and Arabic, and I have also met many different cultures with this name. I was born in Fátima, which IS a place in Portugal, and I have met many, many, many Portuguese Fatima's in my life.

It's an okay name, nothing particularly special, but it's okay.
