Meaning of the baby name FIRDOS.

  

FIRDÓS (فردوس).  Variant of Persian-Arabic Firdous (q.v.), meaning "garden, vineyard, paradise," from Avestan pairi-daêza ("an enclosed place").

    Some assert Paradise to be in the seventh heaven; and, indeed, I have found this to be the general opinion of my Muslim friends:  but the author above quoted proceeds to describe, next above the seventh heaven, seven seas of light; then, an undefined number of veils, or separations, of different substances, seven of each kind; and then, Paradise, which consists of seven stages, one above another; the first (Dár el-Jelál, or the Mansion of Glory), of white pearls; the second (Dár es-Selám, or the Mansion of Peace), of ruby; the third (Jennet el-Ma-wà, or the Garden of Rest), of green chrysolite; the fourth (Jennet el-Khuld, or the Garden of Eternity), of green coral; the fifth (Jennet en-Na'eem, or the Garden of Delight), of white silver; the sixth (Jennet el-Firdós, or the Garden of Paradise), of red gold; and the seventh (Jennet 'Adn, or the Garden of Perpetual Abode, or—of Eden), of large pearls; this overlooking all the former, and canopied by the Throne, or rather Empyrean, of the Compassionate ('Arsh Er-Rahmán), i.e. of God.—These several regions of Paradise are described in some traditions as forming so many degrees, or stages, ascended by steps. (The Thousand and One Nights, Poole, v.1, 1889)
