Jad


Jad 2Origin: Arabic or Hindi
Meaning: earnest, studious, serious, reliable, meaningful, responsible; or “root.”
Arabic Script:  جادّ
Hindi Script: जड
Gender: Male.
Pronunciation: JAHD

The name can either come directly from the Arabic word  جادّ  (jad/jaad), meaning, “earnest, studious, serious, reliable, meaningful, responsible.” This is also the Arabic equivalent of the Biblical Hebrew male name, Gad. Many other sources have listed this name as meaning “benevolent,” in Arabic, but I cannot find any Arabic dictionaries indicating this. The name can also be from the Hindi word meaning “root.”

Jad recently entered the U.S. Top 1000 male names and currently ranks in as the 980th most popular male name.

A notable bearer is the American documentarian Jad Abumrad.

Another form:
Jaad
