An Arab terrorist who established Al Qaeda (KI-da) and world's most wanted in the terrorism world, Osama Bin Laden, has/had this name.

Osama bin Laden is an Arab terrorist that is basically responsible for the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Pennsylvania in 2001. But it's OK, because in 2011 the US Army found him and shot him.

I really like this name, and I think it's bad that it will always be associated with Osama Bin Laden! The name Osama makes me think of a strong and determined person.

Great Muslim name, I like how it sounds. It's similar to Obama. (: And I'm pretty sure that bin Laden didn't found al-Qaeda, but he was the leader of it during the 9-11 attacks.

I think this is a horrible name. Even if it wasn't associated with bin Laden, it sounds ugly to me.

This is a nice name and I don't really think of Osama Bin-Laden when I hear it.

People will always find the lousiest excuses to use this name, like the cliché about people naming their sons Josef in spite of Stalin. However, how many Osamas do people really know? I'm talking about famous Osamas here. You know who this name will be associated with, and I sure assume that any Muslim using this name for their son is making some sort of anti-Western statement.

The only thing this name will ever remind me of is President Bush mistakenly referring to Barack Obama as "Barack Osama".

Even without the bin Laden association, I don't like this name. It seems almost feminine, and kind of reminds me of Ozma. I don't know who actually read the books after "The Wizard of Oz", but Ozma was the name of every last queen of Oz.
And plus, most people would think you're naming your son after Osama bin Laden, which most people agree is not the nicest guy around. I admit I really don't know much about him, although I can't say I'd trust anyone who'd kill thousands of people for attention no matter what his name is.

I've heard that in some countries this name has been outlawed because of Osama bin Laden. Someone told me that no one names their son Osama anymore, because if they did, they would be making a political statement. Either way, it's a horrible name.

Nobody is going to like your child if their name is Osama. They will be bullied and called a terrorist because of their name. I would actually be worried for my family if my child had this name! People would associate them with terrorists and be very xenophobic. The child will sadly never reach any position of prominence no matter how great they are, because the name will be used as ridiculous proof that they are a bad leader. Please, do not name your child this! It will hinder their school life and career. It actually might have been a cool name, and sounds very nice and exotic, but if you live in the United States, the suspicion and bullying will be fierce. Naming your child Gay would be a better choice! And who wants a namesake like Osama Bin Laden, anyways? Very negative association!

Arabic noun refers to one of (lion) names.

This name is just a bad idea.

Sad to say, this name became popular in Pakistan BECAUSE of Osama bin Laden: news. Bbc. Co. uk/2/hi/south_asia/390248. Stm.

Nope. This is like naming your kid Adolf, it's like you think they're the Antichrist or the Devil or whatever.

A definite no-no. Same with Adolf or Satan.

I like that the famous guy was accomplished in life even though as a terrorist. He affected more lives (positively or negatively) than everybody that commented on this page and I would like to do that (positively or negatively).
pecuman  8/31/2015
While I understand that it's an Arabic name and has only really come into association with the terrorist, it's not the best idea. In my opinion, not on the same level as Adolf as he affected the world, but still very bad, especially for an American.

This is a nice name, but unfortunately it will always be associated with you know who.
