Meaning & origin of the name Ali

There are multiple origins and meanings for the super popular name Ali:

1. Arabic name (عَلَى) [aali] etymology (definition) - "exalted, high, lofty, sublime, eminent, excellence, noble, nondurable; gallant", one of the names of Allah.

2. Sanskrit (Hindu) given name (अलि) means - "honest; secure; bee; scorpion".

3. Shortened form of the given name Alistair/Alastair/Alexander etc.

Ali ibn Abi Talib (598-661) was the cousin and son-in-law of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, Fatima`s husband and ruled over the Islamic Caliphate from 656 to 661, and was the first male convert to Islam. Sunni Muslims consider Ali the fourth and final of the Rashidun, while Shi'a Muslims regard Ali as the first Imam and consider him and his descendants the rightful successors to Muhammad, all of which are members of the Ahl al-Bayt, the household of Muhammad. This disagreement split the Ummah into the Sunni and Shi'a branches.
