Meaning of the baby name BADR.


BADR (بدر).  Unisex.  Arabic name, derived from the vocabulary word badr, meaning "full moon." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1873)

The third gate in the palace wall, which opened at no great distance to the eastward beyond the two gates of the Willow Tree and of the Date Market, was called the Bab-al-Badriyah or the Bab Badr, from the Market of Badr that lay immediately outside, where had stood the Palace of Badr, the favourite and all-powerful minister of the Caliph Mu'tadid.  This Badr had originally been a slave of the Caliph Mutawakkil, who had given him his freedom, and Badr rapidly rose to the command of the armies under Mu'tadid, during whose Caliphate Badr came to be considered as the chief man of the state, and among other matters superintended the restoration of the Mosque of Mansur in Western Baghdad,... (Baghdad During the Abbasid Caliphate, Le Strange, 1900)
