Meaning of the baby name ALEM.


ALEM (الم).  A variant spelling of Arabic Alim (q.v.), meaning "one who knows everything."

... To complete his own ruin, the sultan allowed himself to be persuaded to disgrace his vizir, who, escaping to Delhi, quickly introduced the powerful Behlol Lodi, who at once, on becoming master of the capital, assumed the title of sultan; somewhat strangely, however, retaining Alem Shah's name in the Khutba.  Not long after this, Alem Shah offered to concede the empire to Behlol, on condition of being permitted to reside in peace at Budaon:  no difficulty was made in taking advantage of this proposal; and from this time Behlol is reported to have rejected the name of Alem Shah from the public prayers, and the latter was allowed to enjoy his insignificance undisturbed till his death in 883... (The Numismatic Chronicle and Journal of the Royal Numismatic Society, v.10. 1848)
