In Persian, unlike the other languages Iman is usually considered a male name, as my name is Iman. I like the name as it is used kinda unisex! :)

Iman is my name; One who believes in God and his Angels is one definition. I love this name and I am a male born in the United States to African-American parents practicing Islam in the Nation Of Islam.

I was disappointed to discover it is feminine and I thought my Mother was clueless naming me but it appears the attributes of the name meant more than its gender.

The prononciation is difficult for typical westerners and my name has been butchered. I have offered alternatives to the feeble-minded such as Imanuel, Manny, or 'E'. Don't hesitate choosing this name for those because of difficult pronunciation... this is a great name and, as I am told, not specifically one gender or the other.

My friend is named Iman. She's Bosnian, and often complains that here in the United States, people tend to pronounce her name I-man. She switched schools this year, and goes by "Molly" now. I think it's disappointing that she's abandoning such a unique name (here) in favor of something more common.

In Islamic terminology Iman has more meaning than just "faith" or "believing." Iman is fulfillment of three things:
1. Profession of faith with the tongue.
2. Conviction of the truth of this profession in the heart.
3. Implementation and action on the requirements of this profession with the body and the heart.

Iman is a female name and if my information is accurate, it is of Persian origin. It is usually given to women of royal birth.

Iman is actually a female name. It has a variety of spellings, with Iman being the most popular.
Being of Arabic origin the pronunciation is very specific, the first syllable being 'e' as in the second 'e' in elephant, and the second being 'maan', elongating the 'a' as in 'far'.
