Etymology of the name ALI.
Meaning of the baby name ALI.


ALI.  Or, Wali, meaning "slaughter."  In Scandinavian mythology, the son of Odin and Rindr.  He slew the wicked giant Hödhr, to avenge the death of the beautiful Baldur, the beloved of gods and men. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

ALI (عالی).  Arabic name, derived from the vocabulary word 'alī, meaning "high, noble, sublime." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1873).

... More terrified by dread of the pacha, from whose wrath in case of refusal there was no chance of escape, than tempted by his promises, the Greek undertook the false swearing required.  Ali, delighted, dismissed him with a thousand assurances of protection, and then requested the presence of the sultan's envoy, to whom he said, with much emotion—
     "I have at length unravelled the infernal plot laid against me; it is the work of a man in the pay of the implacable enemies of the Sublime Porte, and who is a Russian agent.  He is in my power, and I have given him hopes of pardon on condition of full confession.  Will you then summon the cadi, the judges and ecclesiastics of the town, in order that they may hear the guilty man's deposition, and that the light of truth may purify their minds?"... (The Crimes of Ali Pacha and Others, Dumas, 1908)
