Meaning of the baby name SALEH.


SALEH (صلاح).  Arabic.  The same as Salah (q.v.), meaning "mission."  Salih (صالح), "apostle," is also sometimes spelled this way.

... SALAH, or Saleh, son of Arphaxad, born in the thirty-fifth year of his father, A.M. 1693.  He begat Eber at thirty years old, and died aged 433 years, A.M. 2126. Gen. xi. 12, &c. (Dictionary of the Holy Bible, Calmet, 1832)

SALEH.  In Arabic history a prophet who entreated the Thamudites to renounce idolatry, and as a sign of his miraculous mission made a camel with its colt to come out of the solid rock.  The Thamudites continuing incredulous, to please them a man named Codar el Ahmar slew the sacred beast, whereupon Saleh announced the destruction of the tribe, which took place three days afterwards, when a thunderbolt fell from heaven and consumed them all. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
