Meaning of the baby name YUNUS.


YUNUS (قانوني).  An Arabic form of biblical Jonah (Hebrew Yonah), meaning "a dove."

    During the past few years, since it has been generally known that in the village of Nebbi Yunus (Prophet Jonah), a tomb, supposed to be that of Jonah, stands upon one of the mounds which cover the ruins of ancient Nineveh, it has been believed that Jonah was certainly in Nineveh; that he survived the destruction of the city, and finally, after his death, was buried above the ruins of the city whose overthrow he foretold... 
    ... and now, between Beyrout and Sidon, is a Kahn Yunus, where the prophet is said to have suffered shipwreck... (Jonah in Fact and Fancy, Banks, 1899)
