Meaning of the baby name JAMEEL.


JAMEEL (جميل).  Arabic.  A variant form of Gamil (q.v.), meaning "beautiful." (The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine, vol.55, 1898).  Also spelled Jamil.

    125.  In the time of Abdul Malik Marwan, there were two lovers, Jameel and Shabiyeh, who were well known all around for the intensity of their passion for each other.  One day Abdul Malik, who was curious to see what sort of beauty was Shabiyeh, had her brought to his court.  Finding her dark-skinned and lean, he asked her:  "What beauty did Jameel see in you that he took a fancy to you?"  She immediately retorted—"And what merit did the people see in you that they elected you to rule over them?"  Abdul Malik Marwan was silenced... (The Wit and Humour of the Persians, Kuka, 1894)
