Medine Meaning and Origin

Medine is a girl’s name of Turkish origin, meaning “the city.” Medine is derived from the Arabic word “al-Madīnah,” which means “the city” or “the radiant city.” Medina, also known as Al Madinah Al Munawwarah (The Illuminated City), holds immense religious importance in Islam. It is the second holiest city in Islam after Mecca. Medina is the place where the Prophet Muhammad migrated to from Mecca, and it became the capital of the Islamic state. The city is home to the Prophet’s Mosque (Al-Masjid an-Nabawi), which is a major pilgrimage site for Muslims worldwide. Medine is used as a given name for both boys and girls, although it is more commonly found as a feminine name. It is predominantly used in Turkey and other regions with Turkish or Arabic cultural influence. The name can also be spelled as “Medina” or “Madinah.”
