Origin of the name KHADIJA.
Etymology of the name KHADIJA.
Meaning of the baby name KHADIJA.

  

KHADIJA (خَدِيجَة).  Arabic name, meaning "prematurely born."  This was the name of the Prophet's first wife.  Also spelled Khadiga, Khadijah, and Khatijah.

... Mahomet and his son-in-law A'ly have, in their numerous wives and descendants, supplied a very long list of names as models for after-times.  A'yesha, the name of the favourite wife, claims kindred with A'yish, "life."  Fatima, according to Hammer-Purgstall, means "the weaner."  That is certainly the meaning of the word, but it seems a strange concert.  Still more startling is it to trace the name of his first wife, Khadija, to the root Khadija, which is rendered in Lexicons "abortivit," and "abortivus camelae foetus." (The Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, v.13, 1881)
