Scripts لقمان(Arabic, Malay Jawi, Urdu)
Other Forms FormsLukman, Luqmaan, Lucman, Lokman, Loqman
From the name of the 31st surah (chapter) of the Qur'an, which was named after a figure who was mentioned several times in Islamic scripture. His name has been theorised to mean "wise" (possibly in reference to his position as a wise man or sage), though it may actually have Sanskrit roots with similar origins to the names LAKSHMANA or LAKSHMI. Some linguists also believe that it is the name of the legendary figure that the Greeks knew as Aesop, hence the association with story-telling.
