The current Lego design.

  1. Sorry if this is explained elsewhere and I missed it, but why "Majd"? That is my second daughter's nickname and given that it's rather unusual, I'm surprised to see those four letters here. :)

  2. My husband has loved the name, word, and meaning since he had a friend whose little sister was named that. He also loves Islamic design and uses Arabic words in his artwork. Majd is especially easy to work with because you can just make small changes from Muhammad (just change the miim to the dot for the jiim), and there are already interesting designs using Muhammad.

  3. Wow, I had no idea! I've never met another American who loves that name as much as we do. Our daughter's full name is Magdalena, but in Arabic it's Majdoleena or Majd for short.

  4. Okay, I LOVE that name and that you can use Majd with it. Almost thou persuadest me to have a daughter. Except I have no control over that. And you really shouldn't have a child just to give her the perfect name.

  5. Yes, it took a little wrangling but we were happy to get a girl named Majd like we wanted, but have a more normal English name for her birth certificate. We expected Majd to be a family nickname only, but it stuck so well that it has been her primary name for all but the last two months. When she started at the British curriculum school this year, she started going by Magda.

    Yes, you shouldn't have a child just for the perfect name, but you have my vote for Majd just in case. :) Sorry for the logorrhea - I'm just excited to find another fan of such an unusual name.
