Meaning: “summer;” or “sword.”
The name can either be derived from the Arabic صَيْف (summer) or the Arabic سَيْف, (sword). The latter is believed to be a borrowing from the Greek xiphos or the Ancient Egyptian word sfet.
Saiph, traditionally pronounced (SAFE) in English, is also the name of the 6th brightest star in the Constellation of Orion. Saiph itself is a latinized form of the Arabic سَيْف, (sword). This form may make an interesting option for a celestial name.
