Database of Arabic Name Variants


Arabic names are spread in a wide geographic area that extends from Southeast Asia to South America, those names are used to be transcripted using the Latin alphabet for many purposes e.g. in travel documents with major differences based on the languages ​​prevailing in those regions, for example the two common names (Muhammad, Abdullah), are pronounced completely different in West Africa than in the Middle East, so their orthography follows the pronunciation which may be (Mohamado, Mouhamedou, Mohameden, Abdolahi, Abdolaye); in addition, to other versions such as (Mamado, Mamadi, Adolay) which are due to the absence of special Arabic sounds in West Africa.
Restoring original Arabic names requires careful processing that usually fails due to the considerable changes Arabic names undergo in non-Arabic speaking environment with East and South Asian countries being the major source of many of the most hard to restore romanized variants compared to their European counterparts.
The database consists of around [40 millions] real-world roman variants for almost all Arabic names with their original Arabic paralles and other important information, variants follow ICAO 9303 aka ISO/IEC 7501-1 make them ready for use by government agencies and other intersted parties.
