Y’all are mad racist on this website.

Anyways, Jamal is a nice name.

It’s pronounced jǝ-MAWL not ja-MAL. Seriously I need to become a pronunciation moderator for this site! Lol.

The first "a" sound is short, like in "and", while the second one is long like in "marble". It's worth noting that the "beauty" in question is the characteristic, not the person who has the characteristic. The Arabic equivalent meaning "beauty = beautiful" is "Jamil" where the "a" sound is short and the "i" sound is long like in "seed". No, it doesn't specifically mean "God's beauty", neither does "Jalal" mean "God's wrath". "Jalal" doesn't even mean wrath to begin with but is closer to "greatness/highness". And all these comments talking about "ghetto people selling drugs" are both funny and sad at once.

Wow, what a nice meaning. I like it for a boy's name except pronounced 'yamal'.

This name has an ugly and harsh sound to it. Yes, it is Arabic in origin, but here in the USA it is definitely a black name. And it isn't considered an upper class black name, but low class and "hood" instead.

I like the name, to be fair it is my name. I am not a drug dealer, that has a lot of kids. Quite the opposite, I was in the ARMY for 12 years, then went on to work at NASA for five years. I currently own an investment firm. Me (I) and my one wife have 2 kids and 7 years of marriage. My name has opened more doors for me than it has shut. The only ones that did not like my name did not like my skin, but that does not stop them from wanting me to teach them about investments.

Extremely common amongst African descent people. I don't mind this name but I can't picture a Caucasian (which includes me) named this at all. Jamal is an decent name but works well for darker-skinned people.

I may be white, but it's a nice name.

Another tacky name from the hood. Jamal sounds like the name of a gangsta who does drugs and fathers kids by different women.

Ironically, there was a boy in my grade school class named Jamal, and he was UGLY (sorry).

I don't care if it's popular with black people. I love its meaning and the way it sounds is wonderful!

I like this name, but most people now think of it as a ghetto name as opposed to an Arabic name since it's been popular with black people.

The name Jamal means "God's beauty or God's mercy." It is the opposite of the name Jalal which means "God's wrath." It is originally an Arabic name and used commonly among Muslims. The female form of Jamal is 'Jamala' and is quite popular. It may also be spelled as 'Jemal' or 'Jemala.'
