I love this name. It's unique and exotic.

"Zaynab" is a composition of two Arabic words. ZYN mean beauty and AB mean father. So ZAYNAB means in primitive dictionaries "beauty of father".

Zaynab is Arabic word and came from Arabic words "zayn" and "ab". ZAYN means beauty and AB means father. So zaynab means beauty of father as per Arabic dictionary. And most famous personality is the daughter of ALI (a.s.) son of ABU TALIB (a.s.)

I knew a girl named Zaynab; she was from Africa. She didn't pronounce the 'b' in her name.

Husayn Haykal's Zaynab is the first modern Egyptian novel published in 1913. The book depicts life in the Egyptian countryside and delves into the relationships between men and women.

Honestly, when I first read this name, it just sounded like a word spelled backwards, like "carrot" rewritten as "Torrac". Funnily enough, I actually prefer this name spelled backwards: Banyaz! The Indonesian word for "much" or "many" is "banyak" and "banyaz" feels to me like it means, "abundance". Zaynab sounds like a sci-fi character. "Tune in next week when Zaynab, Queen of the Teknits, gets lost in the Black Hole of Quaos!" -- or something like that. It's too clipped and the ending seems abrupt, and could end-up sounding like, zay-nap, or "say nap". What about, Zaynaba? It's softer. Zayna is prettier too.

This is somewhat random but it reminds me of the name of the Zainab Ashlander tribe in the computer game Morrowind.

I think I would like it more if I knew what flowering plant this is the name of.

According to The Complete Book of Muslim and Parsi Names by Maneka Gandhi and Ozair Husain, Zaynab means "ornament of the father".

I like Zayna. The 'B' at the end is too harsh.

Even though I am not Arab, I love this name quite a lot. The "b" at the doesn't bother me at all. But I do agree "Zayna" is more mellifluous, but still "Zaynab" is a great name.

I've met one Morrocan girl, whose name was Zineb. I wonder if it's different from Zayneb or just its variant?

My name is Zainab, and I think I'm the first person to have this name. But every time I'm asked what tree or flower my name is referencing I have no answer for people. Over all it is a rare name and it draws lots of attention when seen on resumes, people with this name are bound to be unique.
