Meaning of the baby name ISAM.

  

ISAM (عصام).  Arabic name, probably derived from 'isābat (band, swath), from 'assab (to swathe), in the sense of "protection." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1858).

... 'Isam, the son of Shahbar, is the exemplar among the Arabs of a man who is great by his own merits, and not by the nobility of his ancestors.  He was chamberlain to No'man ibn al Munthir, king of Hira, known as No'man Abu Kabus, and in this capacity befriended two of the most eminent poets of the time, An Nabighat ath Thobyani and Hassan ibn Thabit... (Assemblies of Al Hariri, v.1, 1867)
