Meaning of the baby name RAMLA.

  

RAMLA.  Unisex.  Said to be a Kiswahili name meaning "predictor of the future."  Probably of Arabic origin.  See below.

RAMLA.  f. Arabic name meaning "sand," or perhaps "prophetess."  In use in Egypt.

... The bracelets which ornament the ancles of other females play loosely around the leg; but I see that the bracelets of Ramla move not, neither doth her heart.  I love the family of al-Awwam for the love I bear her, and for her sake, I love her maternal uncles of the tribe of Kalb... (Ibn Khallikan's Biographical Dictionary, v.1, 1843)

    Ramla, the name of two of Aly's daughters, and of the daughter of Moawia, and of the wife of Othman.  The word رمل, means "sand."  There is a species of divination in the East, called the science of sand, which may have led to its use as a proper name, but it is more probable that it was taken from a place of that name.  Ramlat is supposed by Caussin de Perceval to be the ancient Rama. (Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of G.B. & Ire., v.13, 1881)
