Meaning of the baby name NUREDDIN.

  

NUREDDIN.  Arabic name meaning "light of the faith or religion." (Universal Pronouncing Dictionary of Biography and Mythology, Thomas, v.2, 1915)

... Banias fell afterwards by inheritance into the possession of the constable Honfroy, who called in the aid of the Hospitalers for its protection; in A.D. 1157 it was besieged by the formidable Nureddin, who succeeded in taking and burning the town, but was not able to master a fortress situated in a part of the city itself.  The place was relieved, and the fortifications immediately rebuilt by king Baldwin III.  But in A.D. 1165, Nureddin again attacked Banias during the absence of Honfroy, and with better success; after a short siege the place surrendered, and never came again into the power of the Franks... (Biblical Researches in Palestine, Mount Sinai &c., Smith, v.4, 1856)
