Meaning of the baby name HIND.


HIND (هند).  Arabic name, possibly from the same root as that of Hindustan (see note below), meaning "dark" or "black."  This was the name of one of the Prophet's wives. 

... The seizure of this lady occasioned serious hostilities with Central Arabia; but they were at last put a stop to by the marriage of Mundzir with Hind daughter of Harith, the marauding chief... (The Life of Mahomet, Muir, v.1, 1861)

SIKANDAR-NAMA, Book of Alexander the Great, written A.D. 1200, by Abu Muhammad-bin-Yusu-bin-Muayyid-i-Nizam- ud-Din, is a poem of 6886 verses.  It abounds with obscure allusions to facts, traditions, and sentiments of a bygone time, with peculiarities of construction, curious idioms, and unusual uses of words.
     The traditions of Alexander the Great, as told by the Persians, differ widely from those preserved by the Greeks. One of its commentators, Syed Seif-ud-Din, says that Hind means dark or black, the colour appropriated to the planet Saturn, under whose influences Hind or Hindustan is reckoned. (The Cyclopaedia of India and of Eastern and Southern Asia, Balfour, v.3, 1885)
