Etymology of the name NOOR.
Meaning of the baby name NOOR.


NOOR (نور).  Unisex.  Egyptian-Arabic name, derived from the vocabulary word noor, meaning "light."  Also spelled Nur.
    Noor-ed-deen Mahmood (d. 1174), was a famous sultan of Syria, born and died at Damascus. (Ely Volume, Laurie, 1885)

... The people have named me Sitti Noor-ala-Noor.  A poor woman, whose only child, a young man, I was happy enough to cure when dreadfully ill, kissed my feet, and asked by what name to pray for me.  I told her my name meant "noor" (light, lux); but as that was one of the names of God, I could not use it.  "Thy name is Noor-ala-Noor," said a man who was in the room; that means something like "God is upon thy mind," or "Light from the light;" and "Noor-ala-Noor" it remains: a combination of the names of God is quite proper, like Abdallah, Abd-er-Rahman, etc. etc. (Letters from Egypt, 1863-65, Gordon)
