Gender: Feminine
Origin: Turkish
Meaning: “sapling.”

The name comes directly from the Turkic meaning “sapling; young tree.”

The name is currently the 4th most popular female name in Azerbaijan.

The name is exclusively feminine in both Azerbaijan and Turkey and always seems to have been used as a female given name, but in Albania it is a common male name. It is from the ancient Illyrian meaning “young tree” and does share the same etymology and roots as the Turkish as Illyrian was distantly related to Turkish.
