Meaning & History
From the name of the 31st chapter (surah) of the Qur'an, named after a figure who is mentioned several times in Islamic scripture. The meaning of his name is not known; it has been suggested to mean "wise" (possibly in reference to his status as a wise man and sage), though it may actually have Sanskrit roots with a similar origin to the names LAKSHMANA or LAKSHMI.
