Meaning of the baby name ZAHIR.


ZAHIR (ظهير).  Arabic.  From the vocabulary word zahīr, meaning "aide, helper, protector." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1873).  It has the feminine Zahira.

... Moharib and Zahir, the fathers respectively of Khalid and Jaida, were brothers.  Moharib was chief of the tribe of Zebeed, and Zahir was his counsellor.  The brothers quarrelled, and Zahir struck his tents, and cast his lot with the kindred tribe of Saad.  Zahir's wife becoming pregnant, he said to her that if a son were born, he would be most welcome; but if a girl, then she was to conceal the fact, and let it appear to the world that they had a male child, in order that his brother should not exult over him... (Arabian Poetry for English Readers, Clouston, 1881)
